    First off the 88 doesnt have a radio which dont fly with me lol..

    This is what it looks like right now..

    Normally in a fox the radio would be on the bottom under the HVAC controls but someone installed gauges there instead..

    Since I dont need the HVAC controls ive decided to put a radio there.. now unfortunately I dont have all the resources to make something as badass as something that would come out of dannys shop but I worked with what I had lol..

    First off I had to get a new radio

    $107 and a trip to walmart fixed that

    Wow that came out great. Just curious, what did they do with the HVAC controls?

    I just installed the DEH-6600 with Bluetooth. Love me some Pioneer!

    Looks like a nice install. :waytogo:

    He kept them.. neither car has heat or air but he had a set of billet hvac knobs he wanted to keep for looks.. the hvac panel in my car was broke and the middle knob wouldnt go on so I let him keep his..

    I started to get the one with Bluetooth but I always use an aux cord anyway and I have some LG Tones for calls so I wanted the hd radio instead

    Ac delete is pretty common and I guess the heater core is bad in the car is my only guess..

    Anyway I got it installed
