new stereo
« on: June 13, 2013, 09:09:17 PM »
I want to put a new stereo in my pinto. Anyone know if there are any aftermarket stereo installation kits for the pinto or any way I can install a modern stereo in my pinto?
Thanks
Dan

Either find a radio bezel that's been cut for DIN or carefully cut the stock one. It's only plastic & careful use of a Dremel & files will yield a nice result. Other than the stock hot wire I would run all new wiring for the rest of the system.
