Looks like someone boosted my tunes

Last night I finished grinding a dash cover plate down enough to fit a DIN-9 sleeve for my spare Kenwood radio. I stole out into the garage at 10:30 and pulled the Wal-Mart special, marked off the relevant wires, and test-fitted the Kenwood. Unfortunately, there was no juice. I think part of the problem is that the new deck needs constant power and switched power from the key; I’ve got switched power but noplace to draw constant power from the battery. So next I have to figure out how to make that happen.

In other news, I ordered two replacement J-hooks from SSS yesterday in preparation for my gas tank swap. Now that the weather is calming down, I need to set aside a day to make that happen.

    Hi Bill!
    I am working on a 1978 IH Scout II (Ralleye). I am trying to figure out how to get the radio out for some servicing.
    Any advice? I can’t seem to get to the back of it. I was able to get the antenna cable out, by way of the removed glove box. There seems to be two modular connectors I can “feel” but I cannot get any closer to them.
