    Can anyone send me some pics of their radios and speakers and any tips?

    I want to get the most bang out of my buck, along with sound!

    Check out the flickr site. Some new pics of the paint job!

      Yeah...tips: Don't leave the face on if you have a soft top.

      I got one of those marine covers. Had to make a plate to relocate the gauges and radio so it would fit, but that was easy and came out really nice. Kept my stereo dry and dust-free-ish. I also enclosed it under the dash in a large freezer bag to keep the dust and any water drips out. Never had another problem until I left the face on one night...

        I bolted some 6x9 boxes on the top back fenders with some hex head screws holding the speakers in and the nut inside the speaker box. Also built a custom sub box with a slant on the front side that sits behind the back seat. The bottom of the sub box is quite a bit wider then the top. That way to get it out you have to take out the back seat which conceals my bolted down amp. Of course a good crook could still get it all but they will at least need some tools and time! Can only slow em down!

            I just picked up a cheap retro looking one from Wal-mart. Figured why spend a lot on a radio for something with no doors 80% of the year.

                          Where did you purchase the marine cover? Did it come with the radio?...and did I read this right that you wrapped the radio in a plastic bag for protection?...It doesn't get hot?...NICE IDEA!

                            Cheap+loud= easy to replace.
                            Can you tell the difference between $30 and $200 speakers going 55 with no doors?
                            I like the marine cover though.

                              Nothing like the original.

                              It's been working just fine since 1981. Why stop a good thing. Although, those are aftermarket speakers.
