    adding bluetooth

    Just starting a new stereo project in my gen1 Ram 50. I really like the look of the OG radio, but in town I get exactly one station, and while throwback R&B is pretty great I need a little more variation. I've decided instead of replacing the radio with a whole other thing, I'll keep it (mostly) factory and just add a separate system. I'll throw some speakers in the door panels and wire them to the bluetooth receiver/amplifier I bought on ebay, it even has an AUX plug. Its a little guy so I just made a wood bit to put where my ash tray was. Here's some photos. I'm planning on hooking the power into either the cigarette lighter or the factory radio and run speaker wires through the dash into the doors. Since it's an amp and receiver all in one unit I think i'm good.

    That's a pretty cool audio mod. So it's just bluetooth? You could even mess around with a PC printer and make a bezel decal for it to make it look OEM/vintage or even wrap it in brushed stainless steel finish film to make it match the dash bezel (the woodgrain is still a win though)

    *I used the same solid state auto shifter in my Colt project - nice

    thanks Geezer,
    I teach in the Art dept. at FSU and have access to a 3d printer and laser cutter, so after the covid shut down ends I might actually go in and print or cut something to look a little more at home in the dash.
    (i'm also planning on cutting some vinyl and printing a new dome light so i'll deff upload those projects)
