Default 1935 Open Car Radio

Hi,
I'm installing the radio box and speaker in a 35 phaeton and are not sure of placement. Does anyone have any picture of them installed ?


Thanks,
Tony

Tony, There should be some dimples on your firewall where the mounting hole should be drilled. I am including pictures of where these dimples are located as well as an image from the radio installation manual showing the approx location of of the radio between the steering column and the inside firewall. I also included the correct mounting hardware.
