Ordered a retro radio for the '78

I've been meaning to do this for awhile. I have a D-C dash bezel that I ordered several years ago, and didn't want to cut the bezel to install a stereo, so I ordered a retro radio from Custom Autosound, via Tayman Electrical in Florida.(He can't be all bad - he's got a restored '64 Thunderbird )

The new retro radio will fit into the original holes of the dash bezel. I already have an original bracket that is part of the heating controls, but I will have to find a support bracket for the back of the radio.

I also ordered a single CD player to go with the radio, since I do not have an ipod yet. The radio is rated at 200 watts(peak), but I have a pioneer 200 watt amplifier to help boost the meager RMS ratings of the radio.

I will report back after it is installed and I get some runtime on it.
