    Merry Christmas to all. Quick Update. I was able to finally install the newly acquired stock radio and amplifier in the car. I will admit that it was a pain the rear to do the radio. I basically had to remove the complete dash due to the lack of space and size of the radio. It is now in there and all functions well. I also installed the new tp of the dash I bought from LMR. Here are some pics.

    I am still having issues identifying these two cables that come from the A/C control unit. I could not find where they go to. If anyone knows, I would greatly appreciate the help.

    Ted,

    When I open the diagram or print, it is not 100 clear so I am having a bit of a problem reading the schematics. Can you send those via email? drao24433@gmail.com

    OK. I found this which I suppose goes to the missing stock amplifier. Can anyone tell me what they go to? Do they go to the speakers or where? 4 Wires.jpeg

    That is a bummer that they hacked in the job, not too surprising unfortunately. As for how the radio is held in, it is held in place with the top two tabs that extend out over the radio face (see my third pic above). Those screws go in up through the dash into the brackets. I also believe there is a rear bracket that goes onto the stud on the back of the radio and goes up into the dash structure somewhere, can't really remember how it all goes. The face of the radio is just setting against the back side of the opening on the dash, with the placement held by the (3) fasteners. Make sense?

    Update on the radio. I worked on the mess of wiring that I have on the vehicle. Whoever installed the aftermarket radio really did a number. I have reconnected the wires for the radio pigtails. While there, I started to remove all of the additional nonstock speaker wires and I came across the fact that the stock amplifier is no longer there. There is an aftermarket one, albeit very small. I had to remove the a/c control panel and found more cut cables which I will be working on tomorrow. Let's see how that goes. Does anyone have a picture of the interior opening for the radio? I am trying to identify how the radio is held once in its place.

    Eric,

    I bought Metra part # 70-1772 which I believe will help me with the radio installation. I will let you know how it goes. I hope to do it this weekend.

    That is your power feeds to the unit, so kind of important. Do you have a schematic to get things sorted out? Let me know if you do.
    Ted,

    I do not. If you could please help, it would be greatly appreciated.

    The top brackets extend forward and you access those from in front of the face plate, under the lip of the lower dash. If I remember right, there is another bracket that hangs down that the rear bracket stud goes into. To get the radio out you have to not only remove those (3) fasteners, the electrical harnesses and antenna lead, but also a bracket to the driver's side under the dash. From there, it takes a very specific rotation of the unit to get it in/out of the cavity of the dash. If done correctly, you can do it without doing any damage to the front faceplate of the radio, but it takes some creative thinking and patience to get it right.

    Ted,

    Thanks so much. My radio is missing the pigtail or rather the plug where the yellow wires are in the last picture. Again, Thanks so much for the help!

    I also have a stock 86 radio that is out. It still has the wiring and mounting bracket. We can compare to what Ted has. They should be the same. Mike
