eBay…. It wasn’t cheap…. UghWhere did you get it?
Those things are like finding a hens tooth these days.
I love the look of this radio. And of course it’s one of the most expensive ones you can look for. The seller supplies some modified silver knobs that I guess are shorter for this radio as the stock ones are said to stick out too much.I got the same radio. Change those knobs to GN knobs, they fit right on. Craig is a GREAT guy, honest and competent.
I dig it. Looks great in there. What did you do for speakers?Here is my setup.

Yeah he told me the same. I planned on swapping the radio and speakers at the same time though. What modifications do you have to make to use 6x10’s in the rear?Went the same route.
Can I use this unit with the stock speakers, until I get new ones? The seller confirmed this head unit is designed for 4 ohm speakers all around, rather than the 8 / 10 ohm ones in our cars.
Planning to get some new speakers soon, just need to pick them and wait for shipping.
I'm using the stock ones, for now.I dig it. Looks great in there. What did you do for speakers?

That’s good to hear. I’m trying to decide if I really need to go 6x9 in the rear or just for simplicity go with the 4x10’s. Somewhere down the line I plan on replacing the carpet and at that point may consider a small amp since it will be easier to run and hide all the wires.Figured I should update this.
Installed everything, new audio system works for me. Didn't end up needing any if those wiring adapters.
The door speakers are quieter than I thought they'd be, not sure if I need to change the stock wiring scheme to get more power to them with the new stereo.
Ultimately, replacing the 35 year old speakers with these was worth it!
