I am trying to fit an aftermarket CD player to the cruiser and have been lead to believe that there is a company that manufactures a range of wiring adaptors so that you don't have to cut any of the original wiring.

Apparently if you have for example a Kenwood CD player and a 80 series cruiser, then this adaptor will just plug in to the cars original wiring and then the other end fitd a kenwood.

If anyone knows the name of the product and where it can be bought, I would appreciate knowing, cause Supercrap say they dont exist (mainly cause they dont know anything about it I suspect), but I know this is wrong cause I have seen them when I was in Brisbane, but of course, I didnt need it when I saw them did I.

Even if you only know the brand name, I can do a search on the net and see where to buy them.

Thanks in advance, cause I know someone is going to know the answer.

A few years some of the top end brands such as pioneer and blaupunkt (think thats right) had some storage based MP3 car stereos, they were quite expensive and if i remember right you actually removed the stereo and took it to your computer. They were quite expensive at the time. I am a little out of touch withthis area since the development of personal MP3 and fm transmitters, may have come along way since tho, will talk to a mate in the industry and if you havent had a solid answer posted ill let you know

Just about all the mp3 cd players do now. Go for a look at somewhere like Auto Barn or Tonkins etc.

Nothing worse when listening to my favourite Pavarotti, Led Zeppelin or Ladysmith Black Mambazo :)))))

Nudie,

I've been running a Pioneer MP3 deck for the past 2 years - never skipped on any corrugations - and its been over the best that the Beadell tracks have to offer.

Cheers
Phil

Nudie,

LBM are/were a group ( 10?) of African tribal singers - no instruments ! Incredible harmonies and vocalizations that featured on Paul Simon's hit "Homeless"

Homeless was included in his Graceland album released in 1986. I'd guess you were well past puberty by then Nudie :))))

When i had a stereo put in my commodore the installer just stripped a little wire leading to the origional plug and attached the one supplied with my alpine head unit. when i pulled the alpine unit out i just cut it's plug off leaving the origional there.

Hey cruiser, try a company called aeropro, they have their own website and are available through repco. They make the stereo adaptors you are chasing.
How bout the rest of you guys try answer the original question instead of hijacking his thread ;)

Thanks woodyWA,

Thats exactly what I was after.

I have just checked out their website and they have a nice little configurator that allows you to pick the make/model/year of your car and then the make of your aftermarket stereo and it tells you the part numbers you need. It also alows you to put in your postcode and it will tell you the retailers in your area.

Funny thing is, Supercrap is listed, despite Supercrap telling me no such thing exists. Now I have the part numbers, guess where I am heading today to show them they are wrong.

Good stuff.
