    Radio Restoration/Repair


    The first time you turned on the radio in your pride and joy (whether it was fully restored or a basket case) may have left something to be desired. This is not the fault of the radio design, for contrary to popular perception, the automotive Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) worked very hard to provide high quality car audio from the very beginning. But thirty to sixty years later, capacitors dry up and leak, potentiometers get caked with dust and nicotine and tubes and transistors fail. Actually, it is amazing that they work at all!

    You can make that annoying background hum, crackly volume control and weak reception a distant memory when you have your factory radio internally, electrically restored. Simply put, the listening experience difference before and after restoring your radio will blow your mind.

    You will add value dollar-for-dollar to the finished product because as we have seen, this is an area of neglect when a car undergoes a true restoration.

    Here is a list of qualified radio restoration shops that specialize in bringing your OEM audio back to life and sounding GREAT!

    These folks know their craft! Please remember to tell 'em the RediRad guys sent you!
