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?


Gone vannin' I'll call you later.

They're black and chrome with ribs down the side and a chrome 'WESTERN' on top of the cap outlined in black. I'm thinking this might look real cool when done, will see..
