    Dear Donald and V-8 Buick audiophiles,

    Congratulations! I think you'll enjoy the improved sound and convenience of a stereo with working controls right on the dash.

    Cheers, Edouard

    Here's some update ... got my car out of storage this tuesday !

    Instaled 2 brand new 300W 6X9 Pioneer in the back and 2 4 inches round Pioneer in the front held by a home-made tray ! Pretty solid actually ! lol

    I went from 2 radios to none !!

    Dear Donald and V-8 Buick audiophiles,

    Looks really great and I'm sure you'll really enjoy the convenience of a modern stereo and the great sound it produces. Are you going to try to reuse the knobs from the original radio?

    Cheers, Edouard

    Yes I like it way better like that . The only thing missing is the "random" button but otherwise it's all good. I use the buttons that came with the radio.

    I start installing the "female" terminals but I found that every speakers wire that came out of the radio were "male/female" for each one ... so I have to do it again for half of them , lol !

    Looks really nice and I can see the attention to detail on the wiring. No wad of black tape ;-) You should add a little shim behind the two top bevel screws --maybe a little rubber washer or two, it would square up the horizontal edge of the bezel. Have you tried out the radio features? How is the reception, etc?
