Re: [DML] Craig Radios..



Nowadays they make radios for classic cars, while appearing to be like the OEM unit, have the capability to play MP3s and run CD disc changers.

Would someone be willing to apply those concepts to a CRAIG style radio?

Subject: [DML] Craig Radios..

  
There was some discussion last year about Craig radios..  And I was just wondering what the market is for them?

I have 3 radios.  All of them work, but have display issues.

Figuring, what the heck, I took one apart and soldered the ribbon cable and was able to restore the display.  However, after a dozen or so cycles of the cassette door, it flaked out again.

I then used some thin wire and ran all new conductors to the display.. The result is the display works great now, but the door it too stiff to put a tape in.  As I started to look online for modern flexible flat cables to replace the old one with, I started thinking....  Does anyone even use the cassette anymore?!

So assuming lots of people have Craig radio's with broken displays, would anyone be interested in a repair that disabled the cassette?  How much more would people be willing to pay to have the cassette still work?  I am guessing most people by now have their iPods attached to FM transmitters.

For me, I'd rather replace it all with a modern stereo unit... but I know there are some purists out there..  And hey, I have some time on my hands now and could use the extra cash.  :)
