My Brat's new radio console...

Recommended Posts

I just whipped this up, looked at it, and saw how really cool it is! Figured it might inspire someone else....

 

What do you guys think of it?

It's made from an '80 radio console, a loyale deck, and a kenwood trim ring (got that at a local stereo shop for free, since I bought some speaks, he just threw it in).

That's a nice job. Looks like an actual upgrade from SOA. I'm going to do something similar with my GL soon.

Hope I can get mine to look that good. No HACK jobs for me.:D

Well - I may put a "real" deck in some day - just don't have the fundage right now. I was going to, but then I found this, and thought - what the heck, might as well. Got it in a $25 wheelbarrow load of parts from a JY, so it probably cost me $2 or something. Works good, and a heck of a lot easier to tune than that silly stock radio that came in them. Analog tuning is just plain dangerous at 85 MPH (yes - the Brat will do do 85 - that's cruising. It will do 95 if you want, but that's ticket space :brow: )

That's how it should be done.

 

Someone InScabulated (similar to installed) mine with large power tools.:boohoo:

Actually, Flo - I do. I replaced mine with a 4x6" Blaupunkt. But I had to buy a set of the silly things, and only needed one. I can show you exactly how to install it too, since I already went through that. Give me $20 and it's yours. I paid $50 for the set, so I think that's probably a fair price. And you get to see how I installed mine as well. Wasn't hard, but had to do some dremel work to the speaker, and it's spacer gizmo.
