Thanks everyone for your reviews. I have now kind of an idea of the trouble
spots and am not discouraged yet. I think I may be able to resolve this
before I install it in the car. I am glad I asked and didn't find out when I
have the rad in place and have to make a  run to the list with big panic
"Help!" subjects.
I am going to order it now, and will let you know of my experience.
