My Car Stereo is Half Done…
Well, I did it; even though I wasn’t 100% sure that I could, I did.
I installed my new car stereo (aka head unit) this weekend and boy was that fun. I ordered the unit from Crutchfield and got all of the mounting hardware and wiring that I would need for about the same price I would have paid locally for just the radio. Anyway, I say that I’m half done because in Ford’s infinite wisdom when they created that 99 and 2000 Mustang, they decided that you may just want to listen to a cassette tape and a CD, and just in case they put two units into the dash of my car. Well when you take out two units and put only one back in, you end up with a small void, roughly the size of a car stereo… imagine that. So my next task is to figure out how to put what I want to put in that hole. Ok, that didn’t sound right, I have a police scanner I want to install there and I just have to figure out how I’m going to do it.
Since I’m obviously not in a major blog writing mood at the moment I’ll leave the rest to a few pictures for those of you that no longer have an imagination left to use. One more thing, if you ever install one in a Mustang and want to bypass the amp, the sunofabitch is under where the CD was.
