    Hi guys
    First post here, so wanted to say hello.

    Im fitting an Alpine IDA X305 in a week or two and wanted to store the iPod in the card tray. Ive got a old black 80GB which is too tall, but ive also got a Classic which fits in perfectly, until you go to close the tray, when it gets stuck...

    Has anyone modded the tray to fit a Classic? I have a feeling it will only need a mm here or there, its so close...
    I can get pictures/video if it helps?

    Whyyyyy did you take a driver tooo it?

    Its scratched now?? You need to get yourself a trim tool.

    Is it that the Ipod has to much depth so as soon as it gets in the tray it pushes up or what?? I think it is possible...

    If all else fails. Get a nano!!

    Hahaha its ok, im not precious about cars - Its used to already has one or two little similar bits here and there. And ive already bought another tray to mod ready for the iPod anyway :)

    It seems to sit fine the in tray - Cant see what the issue is... It goes in fine all the way, until you push it closed, then it doesnt rebound that tiny bit like normal

    Dont want a Nano - Need the GB of the classic.

    The only thing i can think of is its a weight problem!!

    I know that when coins are in my tray it weighs it down and pops out slower!!

    I have a classic.. Il try when im in it next for you buddy!!

    IF I can get it to work, it should be a tidy little spot to leave it.
