Head Unit Upgrade

The car came with single din Kenwood head unit.  It didn’t really suit the car.  I really wanted to change back to a classic style radio.  The problem was that when the single din head unit was installed the original mounting holes were cut out.  The optimal solution would have been to replace the console with a new unit.  This wasn’t really feasible and was not able to find second-hand one at the time.

So the solution was to get a radio bezel for a non-console car then ‘shape’ the console to fit.  To do this the console was removed and cut to fit under the new bezel.  The new head unit is a Custom Autosound USA-630.  It looks vintage but has connections for USB/iPod, remote wire for amps etc.

The finished article 🙂

That’s the start of the audio upgrades.
