After 6 months Beretta started nicely and runs smoothly, didn't have to do anything, just turn key. 8) And it looks like I left it there yesterday, inside out, thanks to that cover. Though I didn't take it to road yet, maybe after one week or so.... :Yahoo!:

Planning to upgrade sound system a bit from original cassette player to some mp3 machine. Maybe new speakers too. What speakers are on top of dash and how you get them out without taking windshield off?

Oh man you got me(had to go and check). Ok I have 3 1/2 inch speakers from my 90GT. They are a bit small but did fit(direct bolt in). The stock size may be 4 inch, but I'm not sure.
All you have to do is pop the grilles off. There are only two screws that hold the speaker(7MM I think).

Fronts are 4"

Out of curiosity, what is your VIN code? Since last time I did check with the DMW, there was only one (1) 87 Beretta on the whole country, would be cool if that would be yours.. Do you know the history of that car? It was not sold here in 87.

Thinking how to install these speakers, they don't quite fit there, maybe some plywood would do the trick?

Wax on, wax off 8)

What is this tube, should something be in it? Part of ac system?

And this is broken, I think that hose should be attached to that..thing...? It goes to cruise control. Weba do you have new one?

Nice wax, what did you use? I've had extremely good results with claybar+ Turtlewax black box so far.

That tube looks more like coolant related, none of the car's I've owned, have had tube there. Where does it go?

I don't think I have that kind of vacuum hosing piece, unless there is one on the parts car, need to check that, but I don't recall seeing one.

Weba, Autoglym. Finally installed new cd-player, looks nice. Original rear speakers with good eq, sound is very good, I surprised. Have to install front speakers next, needs some wood and Dremel. 8) Notice cd in pic. :D
