Does anyone where I can get the stereo/cassette deck of the ol' Cressy wagon repaired? I've gone through about 3-4 junkyard ones and they always break after a few months. :x

The culprit is usually the switch that changes from stereo to tape mode when it detects the insertion of a cassette. That and the backlighting of the LCD screen.

I know I could have bought a bangin' head unit by now but I want the int to look all stock and I'm in love with the array of glowing buttons on the equalizer. :)

This place is local to me. I can't say I've ever used them for anything other than speedometer calibration.
Southern Electronics

Are parts available from Toyota?

even if the tape deck gets repeard they usaly dont stay good for a long time, they might also start eating your tapes. best bet would be to use a 3.5 mp3 tape adapter (if it still recives the tape) and a haigh line input to rca low line adapter to hook up some amps and keep your eq..

I'm looking for a radio dial bulb for my old panasonic car radio. The bulb has a code that looks like E049? ?= V1, M, or N. Anyone know the modern equivalent of this sub miniature wedge base type of light bulb?

This looks promising. I'll give them a call, unless someone knows of a place in SoCal... Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Sometimes, if you call them up and tell them that you really want to use the OEM unit, their Japanese repair guys will have some knowlege and can get the unit fixed. Try it. You will get turned down but keep pushing.

I'm bringing all 3 of mine to Eddie's next week. I hope he can make one functioning one out of the three. If there's any left over I'll let you know. But the 85-86 have a different stereo from the 87-88. I have the former.

Old fashioned hardware stores like True Value have a cabinet of weird bulbs. Occasionally Home Depots also have bulb displays. When my local True Value was priced out of their location I went in and bought a fistfull of these wedge and bayonet bulbs for a closeout 2 cents each. My dashboard is fully lighted with the survivors. By the way, on Ratsun.net there are several "how to"s on replacing this type of bulb with LEDs. Might be worth a look, they sure last longer and come in many colors.
