Radio Install
« on: January 02, 2019 - 02:45:31 pm »
Im about to put my radio in my 70 Cuda. I have 2 questions. Does the dash drim go on first or the radio go in first it looks like it will be hard to get at the trim screws 3 on one side an two at the bottom. Also what hold the radio in Just the bracket on the side. There are 2 little tits on the front of the radio they look like they go into little holes in the dash frame idont know I never took it out. Also how do the chrome sleeves come off the buttons mine need to be replaced. Thanks Dirk

I "believe" that the trim goes on first (been a lot of years since I installed a factory radio). I am pretty sure there is a bracket to support the rear of the radio.
