Re: [DML] New Stereo?

>From what I understand, no one really uses the old 2-shaft (or  "dual-shaft") 
style anymore.  Crutchfield *might* have a model or two, but  they're 
guaranteed to be tape-only (the 5" CD would be larger than the primary  opening in 
the dash!).
When I bought my car, it didn't have the original Craig radio, but some  
Blaupunkt one.  Came off... *thinks* '83 Saab?  At least, that's  what the 
sticker on the radio chassis claimed.  They also had to rig it up  a bit to get 
it to fit.
Your best bet would be to either cut the original mounting bracket to  accept 
a DIN radio, or get the DMCH mounting bracket and save your original  
bracket.  That's pretty much what I went ahead and did.  From what I  understand, 
DMCH's back-stock of the original mounting brackets are running a  little low, so 
I thought it best to chuck mine up in the closet.
Just my two cents.
