Update on the retro sound stereo I just put in the car. The radio comes in extremely clear even though I don't have an antenna. It is plugged into the antenna cable.

Hi dads2vette,
Looks like you have had your RetroSound stereo installed for a couple a couple years and wondering how you feel about it?

I've had my RetroSound radio for 2 years now. It's a big disappointment. After cruising for awhile the stations start to fade out and the Bluetooth feature doesn't work right. 
The antenna is new and I even have a micro fan wired in so it helps cool the radio and amp unit. Chinese crap imo.

That's disappointing as I was thinking of going that direction.  Maybe I'll just send my factory radio out to be overhauled.

I gave up on the stereo idea and went with the Bose soundlink mini bluetooth speaker for $129
 no installation what so ever and I can remove it from the vette and listen it to it outside by the pool. I play my music from my iphone no problem and it sounds great ..

and yes that big glass door opens up fully to drive the vette out
