C230 Double Din Stereo

1998 C230 (new to me). Best case scenario is to install an Alpine iLX-007 (CarPlay) unit in place of the old cassette deck.

Here's what I thought about... move the climate center to the location of the cassette storage trays, that will leave two DIN sized-openings with about " between them... Dremel out the bar in the middle and install the Alpine iLX-007 in the resulting Double DIN(+) space. This might leave a " gap above and below but a trim ring or plate should fill that.

Has anyone done or seen this done before? Is the Climate Control harness long enough to relocate to the Cassette storage location?

I've photoshopped a picture to show what I mean...
