Re: Adding a I-Pod/MP3 player
It can't be done on a radio that has the two shaft with the two knobs. That is the type of radio you have, right? The radio needs an auxilary input wire/feature and the old radios don't offer that feature. You would need a unit that is what is called a DIN style. That is the type that does not have the two shafts. You have to cut out the area of the dash that the two shafts slide through in order to open up the area so the unit can slide in. Some radios have a port right on the front of the unit where you can plug in the wire from the I-pod. Also, you would need the car kit for the I-pod. Call any REPUTABLE car audio business and they can tell you everything you need to do the swap and installation. The most important thing is are you willing to cut into the dash? If not, then you will have to mount it in the glove box, but IMO, if you find someone that is WELL KNOWN they will do a very nice job on the installation. Plus, later on if you decide to go back to the original style, you can always weld in pieces to the dash to return it back to original.
