ASI / DMC Radio wanted
#1
I would like to fit an original radio to my delorean. Being quite a late car (without the clock) I think this would be an ASI radio?

At the moment I have a Retro Sounds radio fitted and it doesn't look too out of place, but I really prefer the look of an original

Cheers

Get a faceplate instead. Turns the retrosound into something thats more fitting

I have an ASI in my car, but like the Craig radios the reception is very poor. Depending on what you want from a radio/stereo and what your expecting you may be better off with what you have.
I personally have fitted a digital receiver and this has made the ASI a worthwhile option but on it's own it's rubbish I'm afraid. They were for US frequencies not ours.

thanks for the advice. I have seen a guy who has updated the ASI to output Bluetooth, so that would be great. I have an old Mercedes and that has an old Becker radio, so I am used to the sacrifice of originality over modern convenience lol

dmc1983, that faceplate looks good, where did you get that from?

Yes, I forgot to mention that option, there's a chap in France IIRC can convert the Craig ones to be fully 'modernised' including working on European frequencies but he does not do ASI ones. I believe our very own tech guy (Richard) was going to look at converting the ASI's as well but not sure if he ever got around to it.
Certainly the faceplate on the one above makes it look very period. This may be the cheapest option?

I've just "made" a DMC ASI radio from parts. Bought a Jag ASI radio and fitted the DMC trim

Its from a Jaguar XJ6/XJS, part number JHT-106010, as mentioned got mine from Ebay for £100 from a guy in Lithuania. I think there are different versions, one for the American market and another for the rest of world.

do you know I bought a Becker radio from a guy in Lithuania, I wonder if it is the same guy.

Found loads of them on the US eBay, but nothing local (typical) I think I may just get one form the US and have it shipped to my Brother in Law (who lives in Seattle) I need to order the nose piece and other bits, so I can get them all sent to him

I see the Jag illuminates orange, is the DMC green?

I can not be sure but all the pictures I've seen are the same as the Jags, also https://www.deloreanmuseum.org/asi-proposal.html shows orange.
