Well, I put some GAS in it after i run out bout 4:30 this mornin, good thing i had some in a can in the back. It was a u turn and back a couple miles to the station.Gotta fix that gauge for sure, didn't drive it last week and forgot to fill up, atleast it was only $65 or so compared to $100
+ in the 97.

wookee, good guess, and I suppose it would work well for the gauges, but I have other plans for those.


The real destination for this part is where the factory radio goes. here's the factory mount



You can see this would never work for a large double din DVD/nav system, since they didn't have those back then.

Here's the test fit of the new mount





I think it'll work well, and have no visible hardware. It'll be attached from the rear before the glove box goes back in.

One thing I've had happen several times with original Delcos that I haven't had happen with any others, you can literally pull in, shut it off and then get back in 10 minutes later and the green eye is gone, dead and done. Good batteries though, almost always last longer than their warranty.

You mean the size of the factory hole? I had a double DIN nav/dvd in my '77 in that location. I made a dummy factory AM face to fit in the factory bezel that flipped down on hinges. The double DIN slid out from that cavernous space behind the faceplate so it looked factory when closed. It worked well, but I eventually went to a KOS-V1000 with a KOS-L432 mounted in the overhead console. The van met its demise before I found another use for the space behind the faceplate.

rofl the stripes aren't right, I thought the same thing they need to be more flared doing like a tail or come upwards at the end. As I said, I'm no artist and this is a VERY rough idea. Thanks for the input though, got any other ideas on the stripes though?
