I've been waiting a long time for somebody to make this so I'm really excited to share it. I've seen people run Aux to the original radio, but this goes way beyond that. You can keep the looks of the stock radio, but with modern amenities like Bluetooth, Aux, and outputs for Amps and Subs. I posted the website and Youtube link to a Cadillac radio below.

This is excellent, Russ! Thanks for posting your results. I can't wait to get my radio done. I'm still using the CD player I put in my glove box years ago, but I've been itching to get my original radio converted to play music through my phone.

Somewhere there is an old post about my new converted original AM/FM radio. Works great, very happy with it. Today I finished hiding the accessory plugs to the radio.  Blue tooth connect button, usb port and my ipod jack.   I even replaced the cigar lighter with an accessory plug.

I'm going to do this I think. Once the Hearse leaves on Monday the 18th, I'm going to start ordering all kinds of goodies for the sedan.

1957-68 Cadillac Radio could off course work for you. Its a lot cheaper and fit right in, but the display is not looking stock.

There are more expensive choice from the same manufacturer as well. The more gadgets = higher price. 1964 Cadillac radio

We have a few guys here in Oz that do that as well..

Similar prices, and as you say, not cheap. I'm going to do ours one day, I just have to arrange that second mortgage on the house and sell a kidney and we're onto it.

I enquired about that on the YouTube video and was quoted 475.00 for basic AM/FM/Aux input four channels. Full everything 675.00 + shipping. It's expensive, but I'll definitely be looking into this for my car eventually.

That's pretty sweet. How much is the conversion?

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 6 Comments

Hello All.

I believe the starter solenoid has gone bad in my 64 DeVille. When I turn the key, often all I get is a click, then if I try a few times again the starter turns perfectly. All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …

Upper A Arm Rubber Bumpers

Posted by Gene McIlroy on August 12, 2019 at 1:30pm 3 Comments

I have found a very good replacement part for the Upper A Arm Bumpers.  The top part is identical to the originals the bottom can be used as is or after a few minutes with a belt sander can be ground to the V shape as the originals were.  The replacement bumpers are for a 2001 to 2005 S10 Sanoma or Blazer.  Part number is on the box in the photos.  First photo is the box next to the box is the S10 part and an original.  Next photo shows my sanded down part next to an original.…
