We had the good day I was hoping for. After much dash work with the new cruise control complete with new speedo cables (the 1 original cable was burned to a crisp) and the new motorized 7″ screen radio installed……the punch list is shrinkingOn and illuminated with the FiTech monitor on the dash really wakes up.Today I’m installing the sales “smart” radio in Tail Gator todayIf you haven’t shopped car radio in a while you just would not believe the things available at prices back in the day when I was involved with consumer electronics we couldn’t even imagine! Playing DAD’s …..connects to your radio…….remote control……sub out…..what else?…..Waaaaaaaa! For how much!!!!! The unit u see above does all that and crazy more…..well for under $200 its simply unbelievable to me….better living through technologyof course there are many different brands, options AND prices…….these are what we use in this application.
So like I said Tail Gator gets one of these today………will be a blast updating a dash I put together over 15 years agoUnder the header…..you never know what you will find….I forgot but the carpet in Tail Gator was covering a very special original floorbecause the mail floor has a layer of structural diamond plate with the carpet pad glued……what fun! Stay tuned for more on this projectFandango is coming off the lift…replumbed tanksfor its new FiTech fuel injection on its 403Stay tuned for more….
And what did Mac send me?It’s the new dash for Baby Blue….Stay tuned…..gotta go, see ya tomorrow….
