Should I bring the seats from my '68 Plymouth Satellite while I'm vacationing in the UP in July? Big Grin

Sure. I'll show you how to do it while I work on the Frazer. Big Grin
But keep in mind, seat covers are readily available for your Satellite. Not so much for the Rambler.

Where are you going in the U.P.?

Figured I'd get a reply like that.  I know seat covers are readily available for the Satellite, just yanking your chain a little.   Big Grin

I forget the name of the nearby town, but it's about halfway up the peninsula.  GF made the arrangements.  I've seen some pics and it looks nice.

Made a new Bullet mold for my 30-30.  Mold blocks are milled from 360 brass.  Sprue plate is cold-rolled steel.  The bullets are a gas-check design and weigh 160gr when cast from half wheel weight and half lino-type.  Now to get some loaded up and let the testing begin.

On top of the dashboard for example where you wouldn't want the bulk of the entire radio. It's a standard feature of some of the newer radios out there, so I'm assuming Vinny's product allows owners of non-removable face plate radios to convert their own vs. having to buy another new radio.   6799

Back in the day they sold car stereos with removable face plates to try to reduce radio thefts from vehicles. The idea was that you took off the face plate and then carried it into the house/store/work/wherever with you. That was too much of a hassle for most people and they just threw the face plate in the glove box instead out of sight. The thieves figured that out pretty quickly so it didn't do much to dissuade them from breaking into your car anyway.

I believe most of the after market stuff has a removal face plate. To have the control head, tuner & amp separate, would require a cable to connect the two. Forget CDs & USB, a pain changing on the fly (driving).

I know a few guys that built their HotRods using hidden radios and they are not to jazzed after the install. Idea sounded good but the execution misfires.
