Installing radio - have questions

I am mounting a new radio in my 02 w/o AC. The radio is not as wide as the console, so I saw on ParkerPerformance their option for radio holder. Are there any other alternatives I should look into before purchasing this?

How have others hooked up constant power? New wire?

plumbing strap (soft steel strapping about 3/4" wide with holes every half inch or so)and ran it from the mounting stud on the back of the radio chassis to a conveniently placed nut/bolt atop the steel bracket that holds the ashtray. The faceplate mount is screwed to the wood (it's an early car) surround that holds the ashtray. That rig has been holding well since May 1969...

use a voltmeter to identify the terminal that is hot when the ignition switch is turned to the first (accessory) position. That's the one you want to wire your radio to. Be sure the hot lead to the radio has an in-line fuse, and that you ground the radio properly. The console doesn't provide a ground at all, since it's mostly wood and plastic, and you don't want to rely on the antenna lead's shielding as a ground.

Cheers
