I see the radio section of the dash has been cut out just like mine. I suppose it makes for easy installation of a newer single DIN radio head. I removed a stock AM/FM/CB radio several years ago from a Wag I found in the Pick and Pull. It was a nightmare getting it removed. The glove box had to come out first. Even then, the vent ducting behind the radio wouldn't provide enough clearance to remove the radio. After a mighty fight, I won. But now, I cannot install it into my wag because its dash has been cut up by the previous owner. Here's a link to my AM/FM/CB Radio

It had a single DIN radio that had seen better days. I found a clock block off plate and might put the switch panel back in where the ash tray is suppose to go. It was missing the glove box all together. Easy access. I removed an AM/FM stock radio out of one at a wrecking yard also.... Huge PITA with glove box in.



What are you going to do with the

cb?

I'm getting the gauges ready to go back in.


I'm also filling in the rust pits with spot filler on my glove box door.



A friend just bought this cool old bike. I figure there are a few bike fans on the forum.

That is a pretty cool option. Would it work with a factory radio or one of their retro radios only?




I have a really cool update!


The Beast runs again! It's almost weird because it is so quiet and very smooth. It has great cold oil pressure and really good vacuum.


Now that it runs It's time to button the wiring up and get the gauges installed.



Here are a couple pics from tonight.





Just condensation. no smoke!









I'm super happy. I took a video, I'll probably post it on FB on the jeep pages there.
