That lil thing is awesome, is it a piece of angle aluminum?

Used along with drilling, that would work great!

Here is then Radio mod done only removing bottom plate and doing next wiring... Jumper wire if asked from me does the 'dummy' casette bypass. Music should ring then on B side via aux.

Bad number one is that if phone has not traditional way detecting the plug (a microswitch) but instead electrical then restarting radio is needed be done wake up phone detection.
Secondly you could trim the levels if you break down fully the radio.. with this you don't so levels are completely out.. need turn knob up for this..

P.S. I did make this picture note for myself as i replaced the horrible audio cable used here.

Still planning the CD changer ways as i get interest enough.
