Radio install

I'm going to be installing a radio into my 83 110 which has never had a radio and was wondering if anyone knows what kind of harness I need for this job? If there is one how much of a task is installing a radio and speakers on a defender?

I'm guessing he is talking about a stereo. If that is the case you will need to make one yourself off of the pigtail that comes with the radio. Pretty easy stuff for even a novice.

Depending how crazy you want to get with the install it can be as easy as:

- running a wire wrapped around a fuse (might not be as easy if you have glass fuses).
- tap into the Ign + bundle (white wire), and ground bundle (black).
- speakers are easy to wire, hard to mount.
- You can go all out and run wires from the battery with in line fuses also.

As long as you have a fuse in there I think you will be fine. Consider a marine radio!

I am going to put a CB radio in mine - it has a stereo which I plan to leave in. Will probably mount the CB in a to-be-purchased cubby box. Any idea how tough the installation would be?

No harness. You will need to "roll your own".
