Hi, new here. actually got referred here by someone that said if anyone could help it would be on this forum.

I removed the face cover from my radio in order to clean the glass on the station display (fogged up and i never did get it right) while i was at it i decided to remove the cover from the LED display and clean that also. now i am looking at the glass, a piece of rubber the length of the glass and no more then a fourth of an inch thick, a smaller piece of black hard material, and a piece of cardboard with green on one side and white on the other (i think this might be the background for the display). i have put it together several times and still can't get it to work. Help please.

Welcome leeinva1. I see you made it over from the Classic Wings site.

If you can get more light on those pieces and stretch a tape measure out next to the pieces I might be able to help you or one of the many other knowledgeable guys here may be able to assist you as well.

thanks for the reply vic, posting another picture so you can see where all of this is supposed to go. No part is over 2 inches long, black piece is a little shorter then that.

that rubber thing is the contact strip for the LCD screen. Look at it carefully, and you will notice that there are a lot of thin black lines. The sides that have the black lines press up against the terminal strip on the lcd, and the PCB. The black thing is going to be a spacer. The white side of the cardboard should face out.

probably at the top of the LCD unit, as far from the connector strip as possible.

I know this is an old posting but
I have an 85 gl1200 Interstate with an aftermarket radio - I have a Panasonic RM 1100 to install - my question is
Do I have to have the amp and auto volume control for it to work? Can I install the slide mount, hook it up to my existing wiring and have it work?

This is going back a few years... IIRC, the panasonic head outputs line level from the back. You could do what I did though... amp in the side bag. :)
