      Well done! How did you light it?

      Thanks Guys.

      Mathew, I simply used natural light while parked in my garage. I metered off the bright chrome which underexposed the rest. Worked out great coz I didn't lose any of the dial's detail.

      Hard to tell what it is from the small version, but I thought this looked familiar :0) Is that an aftermarket radio? I don't recognize the "FORD" button. Everything's nice and shiny!

      You don't recognise this???? It's a replica of the rare 1966 Mustang AM/FM radio. They're a beefed up stereo radio that can run a CD stacker/ipod from the chrome selector buttons. I went a different route & wired in a bluetooth kit so I can stream music from my ipod touch. All the mod cons with a totally stock look. Gotta be happy with that!

      You have to realize, Evan, that I have not been spending much time around Mustangs for quite awhile so have gotten a bit rusty in my ID skilz. Updated unit was my guess although I didn't remember about '66's having that option (haven't seen my brother's car in about 5 years - it's playing hide and seek too). Yeah, high tech on the inside/original looking outside is great - restomod radio!

      I only knew cause I've read about them on some of the Mustang forums...here's a little bit about them...modern sound system behind a vintage look plate...pretty cool!! :)

      Cool Pic..... and, don't turn your back on me, or this is gone!!!

      I've tack welded the shafts into the dash. I know your kind!

      Evan - lol! Hope you don't have to pull it for warranty service :0)

      Blondygirl - yes, I've seen them too, when they first came out but then forgot about them. It sure would be nice not to have to reach over to my glove box to change stations!

      Time to move with the times Thor! The USA-66 is a perfect fit for some early Falcons so you might be right.
      My warranty is well & truly up. The unit has been sitting in the box for years. Although they seem like a cheaply made unit, I'm not expecting too many hassles.

      You know money makes the car world go 'round, Evan; Right now I need a new generator, battery, tie rod ends and probably yet another spring change (too low now), but that's down on my spending list. I'm trying to spend minimal $ on the car since it most likely will go up for sale. Then saving can begin for the next project!

      I expect you're right - they've been making those units for awhile now. Happy cruising :O)

      *edit* hey, wait a second; Are you hinting that the tape deck I've had in three different Falcons since the mid 80's is outdated? I just finally got a remote cd deck from a friend and that's almost out of date....lol

      Hard to keep up with the technology mate. Before you know it, you'll be able to stream songs from your head!
