Probably replacing radio in 68 tomorrow; need help

The radio that's in my aunt's 68 right now is a Kenwood that's shot (a.k.a dosent work anymore) and the previous owner had installed 4 speakers; FR, FL, RR, RL. I know the speakers work. For now i'm installing the 2-shaft style radio that was in the '89 (not origional; and didnt fit). Where should I get power for the radio? IGN?

Just wondering.

EDIT: Is there are wire that comes from the fuse box for the 'radio' fuse? If so; what color is it and could I use it?

Thanks in advance!

There should be a yellow 18 gauge wire somewhere near the radio slot in the dash that connected to the original radio. This wire has power in the run and acc key positions. If you need constant power for a clock or station presets the fuseblock has a BAT terminal you can use.

Thanks!

How do I get the walnut looking trim thing off so I can get the radio out?

Two screws at the bottom of the woodgrain dash plate, then it will slide up and off. It's best to attach a bracket to the back of the radio and the other end up to the underside of the dash, near the front speaker area, this really stabalizes the radio--
