The Big Comets

I installed electric power steering in my car and as a result there isn't enough room for the stock radio to fit in the stock location. It's very close, but the steering mechanism extends a little too far to right (probably less than an inch). Has anyone found an aftermarket radio that fits and is narrower and possibly not as deep as the stock unit. I've search many of the aftermarket web sites, but specific info is pretty limited.
Afraid I can't help you with the radio question, but what EPS unit did you install? I plan to install EPS in mine, and I have access to a unit out of a Prius at a really good price.
I fabricated it for about $200. If you do a search for 'cheap electric power steering' you should find several youtube videos that detail the build for Falcons, Mustangs ect.. I used a Toyota Corolla unit and adapted it to the steering box and stock shaft. Two wire hook up. Pretty simple, it works great and is fail safe so if you lose power you still have manual steering.
