Aftermarket radio question

OK I have a JVC headunit that I have half way installed in my truck. I want to mount it in the glovebox of my '79 chief so that I can close the glovebox and not have people see it. However, I don't know how to secure it so it won't rattle around. Above it is the ash tray and the original radio...two things I can't put screws into.
I know many of you guys mount radios in your gloveboxes, so how did you mount your radio? Pictures would be helpful of you have any...

You can use industrial strength velcro. Stuff is amazing and like 4 bucks for 4 strips at home depot. I used it on my amp to attach on top of my sub. I go trailing about 2x a month and I can be a bit wreckless sometimes. Its never detached.

Nothing important...

I couldn't get mine to fit in there with all the A/C ducting. I took a cutting wheel to the old radio and whacked out a spot for my unit.

Try a mecless unit. It does not have a cd drive making the unit about half the size of a standard head unit. Go to amazon and type in mecless headunit you can get them with Bluetooth, aux inputs etc. no one listens to CDs unless they have to

mecless shows nothing. mechless

That's a really good suggestion. I have been looking for one, but did not know what they were called. My cd player skips ALL THE TIME. The paved roads seem to make it skip worse! My mp3 never skips.

Beauty is in the eye of the jeepowner.

I just figured I would use the radio I had laying around for free, which is why I decided on just using my JVC headunit unit. It also has an external input for my ipod
