: Concerning my newly acquired 74 Tii which is now
: at my mechanics having several little things fixed.

: I have a strong gas smell in the cabin which is
: being caused by gas expansion tank having been moved
: and remounted at a funny angle to make room for the
: right stereo speaker. I need to have my mechanic
: move the expansion tank back to its original
: position but then the magnet from the speaker
: is in the way.

: What do people typically do to avoid this problem
: with 2 rear-deck mounted speakers? I am even considering just putting in an original AM/FM
: radio with single speaker in the center console.
: The car is very original and I don't NEED the
: AM/FM CD unit in there now and am almost to the
: point of just going "retro" for originality's sake.
: Along those lines, does anyone have an original
: radio with speaker for sale????

From your message i am assuming that the rear deck speakers are 6x9, if i am correct you can mount them at a different height. it's callled top mounting instead of flush mounting. the easiest way to follow it is through Crutchfield's magazine, they have a great picture and description of it. check out online at the top mounting should lift then up a bit, all else fails shop around for speakers that have less depth. hope that helps
