Retro Radio

Today we installed the retro styled radio. It is a good match to the rest of the dashboard with the black bezel. With most things on Myrtle it took long than expected as the holes on the bezel need to be custom drilled, everything needed to be wired and connected, and then the actual installation of the radio and speakers. We also installed an extra master on/off switch to override it drawing from the solar batteries when in storage. Now that it is in, it works well and has a remote for convenience. The ashtray you can see in the one photo will now serve as an ipod holder as the radio has a MP3 jack.
