    The radio in my 84 K5 is broken. Any ideas on a good stereo that will control a CD changer and NOT require cutting any metal?

    This is more suited to the audio thread, but here we go -

    I don't think anyone makes one anymore, other than Classic Audio, which I have heard quite a few horror stories about. You can install a DIN stereo without permanently disfiguring your dash if you make two horizontal cuts above and below the shaft mount holes and fold them back.

    If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all[​IMG]

    Get yourself a Tuffy security console. Leave your old radio in the dash and run everything through the stereo in the console. It also makes it VERY hard to steal your stereo and the controls are right at your fingers.

    Panasonic made an awesome CD player with changer capabillities. It is from the Rebel Gear line, model
    CQ-DPG615EUC. Unfortunately it was last years model and it is discontinued but still available through through some dealers. This thing is impossible to skip no matter what you through at it. It is a face off deck and best of all it requires no cutting to install.
    Good luck, Shawnboy.

    If they still make it, Kenwood has the KRC-3006 which is a dual post changer control, if mine ever dies and they still make one thats what i'm putting in.

    Just hack your dash. The previous owner of my truck did it and it turned out great. You can hardly even tell.

    I've got the original out of my '86 [​IMG] Works like a charm, even has a tape deck ooooooooo. But i'd buy Tori's over mine since he posted first. And then what you could do is get a CD changer that has an FM modulator so it basically plays through your radio. You can buy em any where, Crutchfield, Best Buy, etc etc. Just look around.
