Worked last night on soldering my wire splices and connectors to the radio and doing the final installation. I'm happy with how things turned out. I could have sent the radio out for a digital upgrade but I just couldn't justify spending the $400. Besides, it was much more gratifying tracking down the cause of the problem and fixing it myself.
Before I started this project, I thought that it would be a nightmare removing the radio from the dash. It actually turned out to be one of the easiest radios I've worked on for removal and installation.View attachment 97749
Let me tell ya, it's real pleasure to follow along with somebody that works their way through problems and properly solves them. The trend nowadays is to simply shotgun parts, chop wires, install aftermarket junk and dismiss a failed 50 y/o part as "unreliable junk"... And I'm not just talking radios.
Keep up the good work. Yellow/Green is uncommon, but not super uncommon. I like the combo very much.
