How about this?

Nuova Rade VHF / Radio hatch with box and lock., Deck Hatches & Portlights | Mailspeed Marine

I tried to find exactly what you're after and all the boxes that looked the right size had a rounded profile at the bottom or they tapered in too much making it impossible to fit a CD player to the inside.

Actually, scratch that-it's the same deal. Too tapered-it's the same as one I cut up to make it work,but a different colour box.

However, if you were to cut the box part off where it's wide enough and fit a new back to it, it'd work. Plastic pipe cement works on the plastic, and it's the same material as white plastic trailerboards.

Thanks for info
Have looked at web page and i think it will fit just need to measure again
It's not for a cd it's only for storage and to fill hole in console where radio was before new layout
