Re: [DML] Radio

That makes more sense...  I wondered about that since my stock radio was 
never very "secure" in it's location (a lot of play).  The shafts simply 
bolted to the radio faceplate, which was edged into the opening send 
kept tight by the mounting bracket in behind.  When I replaced the stock 
radio with a newer one, I saw that the opening was a DIN-sized 
(approximately) rectangle, rather than the solid plate with two-shaft 
holes & a small cut-out as I had experienced in other older cars.  Looks 
like the p.o. of my car at some point had a newer radio installed at 
some point...
