Default Original Radio Removal

Okay, I pulled the instrument clusted tonight for a repaint. (I'm still looking for a paint I can buy locally that will do the job SEM trim Black 39143 or 5 ball will do and still open to alternative suggestions)

I got the bezel clear but, I'll be doggone, I can't figure how to detach the radio. Feel a bit like a fool, too. I've done far more complicated things, but can separate the bezel from the radio, not wanting to destroy the radio in the process, I thought I'd ask you for some direction. Suggestions?... Strike that... Answers? Ugghhh.

Did you remove the 9/16 nuts from the radio shafts? They are behind the *****. ***** just pull off. Nuts are hard to get to with a socket. Sometimes I use a pair of needle nose pliers. mike...

You are a smart guy. Take a break when frustrated and not force/break parts. Somehow, one hour later, most things make more sense.

Purchase the assembly instruction manual (AIM) before you put it back in. AIM shows how the dash was assembled, including the radio.

AIMs are handy things to have around.
