  1. Hopefully the members you sold them to will post some pics. Thanks.
  2. Any updates on this? Photos on a finished car?
  3. Sucks that it hits the am/fm buttons. I'm starting to lean towards this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/203473603999?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=OrwPIENwQFO&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=F0dqPHfESqO&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY It's about 3x what I want to spend, but it has dsp to fix the crappy sound quality, it's 8 channels, which would allow two dash, two door, two rear quarter trim, and bridge the last two for a sub.
  4. Got this on eBay, hopefully it works out. Working through figuring out the audio setup. I'm assuming it just had outputs for left and right, one pair. I'd ideally like more than that. In a perfect world, I would have dash speakers, door speakers, and rear quarter trim speakers. I also need Bluetooth handsfree. Options for that include fm Bluetooth transmitter, fm antenna plug Bluetooth, or maybe gutting a Bluetooth portable speaker and getting creative; Memphis audio headless receiver, with the 8 track wired to the aux port... But I don't know if you have something plugged in the aux, whether it "overrides" the Bluetooth input... And to get the correct number of speakers with Memphis, I'd need multiple speakers from each channel, which decreases power, unless they're 2ohm... Unless I wire the 8 track to a hertz dsp 8 channel sound processor or their 8 channel amp with dsp... But that's getting crazy expensive.
  5. Thanks. Very helpful photos
  6. Thanks. That's a helpful photo...which brings up another question: looks like there's room above the radio, below the air vents, to put a small tach...Is there a reason I've never seen that done?
  7. I sent a message saying "Do you have the measurements of the radio?" He responded "no" Guess I should have asked more directly.
  8. Thanks. Also found this one: http://www.katestrackshack.com/car_players_InDash.html Basically new in box. I emailed them, and it's 2" tall by 7" wide and 7" deep. That 1973 ford one looks pretty tall, no?
  9. Anyone know if this will fit the radio opening in a '70? https://www.ebay.com/itm/125414049965?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=cy3pyxxysme&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=F0dqPHfESqO&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  10. I bought plans for this: https://customdiykit.com/1969-70-mustang-center-console-build-kit-diy-build-your-own-custom-console.php If my car ever gets back from the mechanic, I plan on building it, and will post photos.
  11. I also like some of the antique-y looking ones, with off white face, and my seats and convertible top are "ford white"...but if they don't quite match it'd probably look bad. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sww-82258?seid=srese1&gclid=CjwKCAjw2rmWBhB4EiwAiJ0mtfilHxnQdaz7Z1ZKZZp1Zyuo8qW5J98yW5BlWy_9eJ1zYxZYp7AKRBoCjKIQAvD_BwE https://www.amazon.com/Auto-Meter-1898-Electric-Tachometer/dp/B000CIH382/ref=asc_df_B000CIH382/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312151254461&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=17226517303163559954&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9009718&hvtargid=pla-583169436128&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=62843672300&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=312151254461&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=17226517303163559954&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9009718&hvtargid=pla-583169436128
  12. Anyone use these in their mustang? https://www.autometer.com/5-speedo-160-mph-in-dash-am-muscle.html I like the style, but not sure how it'd look in the car... Might be too much metal/ too flashy for it.

    Thanks, just messaged him.
  14. I actually went with the mgw. I contacted them, and they said they can put an extra bend in their handle to make it easier to reach. They also said that their handle is just a 3/4" round rod, so it's pretty straightforward to fab a custom rod.
  15. Also, I know in a modern mustang it's a relatively straightforward thing to install...but in ours is it, or do you need to drop the transmission to install the short shifter?
