So my birthday was on Saturday, and as I kid when your birthday is right before Xmas you sometimes get a little gypped with a combo birthday/xmas gift.
But when your wife gets you a Retrosound Model 2 you could not be happier.
The original AM radio worked OK but when you really enjoy listening to some tunes an AM radio just does not cut it.
Here is a comparison of the difference in size between the two radios.
Here is picture of everything that comes with the radio, more than you will need when installing in a 68 Camaro.
There was a lot of trial and error in trying to determine the mounting of the two brackets, the shaft length and what spacers to use, and I mean a lot of trial and error. In hind sight I could have moved the bracket closer to the front of the radio, moved the shafts back and used less spacers but when it fit really good the way it was at the moment I decided not to mess with it.
Here are the dimensions of the location of the bracket, the shafts and the spacers that I used.
Bracket, .45 back from the corner of the front surface.
Shaft length extending 1.875 out from the bracket.
Spacers that were used.
I used quick connect terminials to make it easy to connect and disconnect if needed.
Here is the finished product with all that is left to do is wipe the finger prints of every surface
Next to come will be some pictures of the speakers I used and perhaps upload some sound clips, with a review of the controls to follow.
