IMO, purchase one of those boat console jobbies...keeps the radio protected from the elements. I need to do that before purchaseing another one, since the elements kill mine in a month or so....

If you remove the fuse block from it's mount, there should be two separate male spade terminals on the back, separate from the "block" connections. One is switched, one is not. Take yer pick, depending on if you can remember to switch it off when you exit the vehicle.

run the main power to batt, then run the other to fuse panel to a fuse that has power only when the ignition is on.

that little pod looks like a sweet idea... but how does it hold up in the summer when it gets hot out... does your deck overheat or anything? i'd like to mount one of those pods in between my seats, as i have a floor shift

The ash tray is a poor place to put the radio. If you have any defrosters in the windshield, the sheet metal tube is in the way. The radio can't be slid in. I removed the ducts in my 78 to redue the dash, and installed a small fan above the windshield to direct air for a defroster.

Before there were aftermarket replacements, the only option was OEM. Didn't want to pay toyota's price. I took the old cracked one into a upholstry shop and had them make a cover. They took measurements off the old cover and made a leather one to those dimensions. Trimed off the outside of the old cover and glued the new leather on. Paid about $75 at the time, at least 10 yrs ago
