car radio extended faceplate

how would you guys google up an extension faceplate for a car stereo? I have a '79 VW SuperBeetle that doesn't have the depth to accomodate an am/fm/cd radio, and I know they used to make a faceplate that extended the radio out about 1" or 1 1/2".. just can't figure how to look up one? thanks..

Re: Sealed Lead Acid

dad used to empty lead acid batteries when they went bad. rinse them out, then cut carefully along the ridge around the top and remove the top portion with the plates hanging.. he'd clean the plates real good, clean out the case, then use some sort of silicon glue he got at Nellis AFB to put the top...

Re: Sealed Lead Acid

what do you guys think of those pulse type chargers.

I've had a few that were not chargeable with the regulated, so I put the pulse on and it...
