wait what? you had the radio installed, you said it worked, then you took it back out and took it all apart, what gives?

first of all taking things apart is cool - no argument there

second I wanted to clean things more better

and C, the AM - FM slider jobbie was refusing to slide, so we must fix it

ait then, go fer it!

I'm with you on that. I really like the 70s black knobs with white print. I don't much care for the 80s knobs.

Gregski, "common" is similar to ground, but those speaker wires aren't actually grounded. They are common to the front and rear speakers. Most audio stuff isn't grounded at more than one point, to cut down on noise.

Re: Restoring Rusty
Greg, have a great time with your family. I used to live in Vancouver. Maybe Rusty and Dusty can post in your absence...

Re: Restoring Rusty
Waiting on Rusty to post some updates while the Greg is out of town. I may be having withdrawals.

An Update From Rusty By Rusty
What's up you'all Rusty here, figure I give you an update while The Greg cleans the house for the Canadians to show up, you know him, a bucket of water and some paper towels...

How did I log in to his account, well he leaves his password on a sticky under the keyboard, duh

Anyway I'm just sitting there in the driveway leaking oil so I got to entertain myself some how

Watched him wash the stupid electric Nissan Leaf right in front of my face, he never washed me like that, see if I start on the first try for him ever again, no just kidding the dude is cool

don't tell him I told you but next month is The Greg's birthday the 25th I recon, poor dude is always eating steak off a paper plate on his B day cause they go camping for Memorial Day weekend each year, for once he would like to eat off a real plate with metal knife and fork

what else, I hear I'm getting a new exhaust next month, don't think I need it, the LMC Truck one I got suits me just fine but what the heck, also I spied a new (used) gauge cluster with one of them Tack-O-Meters in it I think he said, an electric oil gauge and something called a Volt Milimeter, so what ever that is

what else oh yeah, love the new radio, AM, FM, Stereo, Cassette can you believe it, what will they think of next?

shoot here he comes, gotta go... hey whats with this Incognito Window... ???

be good to your trucks you'all

P.S. The Leaf aint even got a radio with a cassette

Re: Restoring Rusty
Thanks for the update Rusty ;)

Re: Restoring Rusty
Good job, Rusty. :lol: Sorry about your leak...

Oh, and don't worry about the stupid Leaf, you'll still be running when the Leaf's battery pack packs it in.

Rich84 05-01-2015 08:44 AM

Re: Restoring Rusty
Don't worry ..we all start leaking a little over 40.

And a pair of headers to scare the kids away from the truck.

Re: Restoring Rusty
Cleaning supplies & paint? lol

Judging by the box I am guessing carb and intake manifold. But I might be projecting my own wish list into Greg's ;)
