RE: [DML] Re: Replacing Radio - how it's done?

Check out for a couple ideas.  Although a little pricey,
they have "Retro" radios that have adjustable width DIN knobs and some old
style cassette radios's.
Here's a quick search that came up with a radio that has an MP3 player
(iPod) jack built in.

Just a thought..

I'm not sure if you can find radios that fit the original space anymore, but
you can definitely buy a single-DIN size replacement console bracket from
the major vendors. They might also have a radio harness adaptor that plugs
into the original harness, then you crimp the wires from your new radio to
the wires hanging off of the harness. There is still a lot of crimping
involved but at least you don't have to hack up your original harness.

I did this quite a while back - if you have any more detailed questions just
shoot me an email, I can probably help.

original doesn't work the screen is smashed and it sucks not having a radio
in the car. I just have no idea how to find a radio that will fit and then
get hooked into the wire harness back there.
