Howdy everyone,
I'm back down at school now after my fun summer of goofin off. One of the last truck buys was a fully restored 71 F100 that dad found for cheap. One thing I can say is the guy that restored it was good at body and engine work, but he sucked at car audio. I'll get some pics up here soon, but it was a friggin disaster when I started tuggin at wires to see why the newish radio/cassette didn't make sound. Ya'll won't believe it...

First here is the truck. A fully restored 1971 F100 stepside with a 302 and three on the tree.

Now here is the radio in question. It would turn on but that is about it

Pulling at the wires made this mess fall down

This is a ground, fused hot (blown) for the memory, hot for the non working powerpoint, and another fused hot that was taped off all tied together.
Some people -- posted image.
Now the speakers (blown) were hanging behind the seat off the springs. One wasn't hooked to any wires, and the other was just hooked to this ball

Just to see if it worked, I just did this temporary.

Wow! sound...

Not sure what I wanna do for a real system yet, but it WILL be done correctly when I do.

haha Sparkomatic! I recognise that radio.. lol
man that thing has to date back to the 1980s from the looks of it.
lovely wiring work there.. *cough*
the guy did do nice work on the door and body panel gaps though.. doors look tight, hood is even.

That looks like a stellar install as compared to the job that I just had come through my doors. I refused to work on the car that came from a Big Box store in Alberta. Seems as though the custom sub box still had 1/8" of mdf dust inside of it. A non bridgeable amp was bridged to 1 ohm. 5 screw holes to mount 1 screw in a new car. Wrong size of power wire, wrong size and type of grounding....... yes I have pic's for the little book of horrors.
Nice truck, no doubt, get that radio up and running and all the wiring cleaned up and it's good to go.
Top Secret, I can tell you but then my wife will kill me.
