So excited!!

I played with the JY stereo more and either the amplifier pinout is different or the radio is broken. I pulled it out and put the original back in.

Then since I figured I had nothing to lose, I popped the JY unit open and looked at the cassette deck mounting. Turns out it was only four little screws and four electrical connectors on the pcb. It also helped to pull the face plate so I could remove the Forward and Reverse buttons.

Then I did the same on the original radio and voila working cassette

I know it’s not as exciting as the cassette deck or clock swap but this morning I finally replaced all the crusty old vacuum lines I could find.

Im still waiting for ipd to get more crank holder tools so I can do the timing belt and water pump. In the mean time I’ve just been enjoying driving the car around town. Here are a few photos of my daughter and I doing wagon things today

If you haven't paid for it yet, you can borrow mine, or even if you already have, and want to crank it out now - let me know

This is one of my favorite new-to-me car peace of mind things to do.

This car is coming out really nicely!

Thanks Keith! I told them to hold off on shipping the parts until they had the tool in stock. Last I heard that would be 1/18. At this point I think Iíll just wait since I wonít have much time to work on it anyway. I might check in again this week to confirm that is still the receipt date cause if it has been pushed back again ... Hope youíre doing okay during all this craziness man.

The wagon is looking good, looks like the kiddo is enjoying it!

I'm just been trying to keep my head down, I've been working from home, so its been quiet.

Just let me know, its just sitting int my toolbox, I can drop off or leave in on the porch for you.
