Finally got around to sorting out the problem of no radio in the Silvia...

...by ordering brand new OEM units.

Brand new Radio/Cassette deck and equalizer unit + front face.

Another thing to get done to the Silvia.



On a side note, the Silvia has been entered into All Japan Day this year. So to the Adelaide crew, and anyone else coming from interstate, come say Hi !

Yep, got them from OEM surplus. Norman helped me out finding the parts and sending them over to me in Australia. Great service.

Looking forward to getting it in and wired up.

Got another package of OEM bits coming soon also! Will post when it arrives.

Yeah they have some nice interior parts that's for sure.

Postage wasn't too bad. For that lot it cost a little over US$90 to get to Australia. Package only took 8 days to get to me.

The US businesses seem to be able to post incredibly quickly and cheaply when compared to Australian companies. I can't wait to see this in there. It's so retro lol.

I've found it very rare to find cheap postage from the US.

In most cases, the UK has been cheaper, even with the exchange rate.

i agree dean. it weird that i send packages to the states all the time and its really cheap but the other way round its ridiculous!

i tried placing an order a few weeks ago and they still have radios and EQ's but they have run out of escutcheons :(

do u have the knobs for the radio matt?

The radio set didn't come with any of the knobs, which I thought was weird. I contacted OEM Surplus to ask about it, and apparently the OEM sets from Nissan don't come with any of them. Luke is helping me out with a set though which is great, although they are silver I will paint them up black.


OK, so going to mount the stereo...

Got nothing to fit the equalizer unit to. Does anyone have the mounting bracket that attaches to the two holes I have circled in red. I'm pretty sure I've seen pics of the bracket that goes in this spot, hopefully they are easy enough to come across, if not I'll attempt to make something up myself.

Cheers.

Is that what usually sits in that bottom left position on the Aus Gazelles?
I would say that it would be the same bracket and mounting holes as the tape deck, if not I could just drill new holes.

Guessing it's the same style as the two brackets above it, just not as wide. Got one lying around in your pile of spare parts Dean?

Yeah, tapedeck lives down there.

No tapedeck, or brackets I'm afraid.

I would've given it to you for the price of postage, too.

I wonder if they're die-cast or something like that. Maybe you could get them anodised?

There was a full original audio setup in one of the two cars here, last time I was there.
Can't imagine anyone would have taken it, so if the cars are still there, it is.

Finally got some time to get my NISMO fog lights fitted to the car. Will spend another day wiring them all up.

They suit the car quite nicely I think! Quite stoked with them.
