|Invoice 1971 National Car Radio|
Just out of curiosity I opened the radio to check the inside.
|Inside the old National Car Radio|
Aha, a 9 mm bulb holder with a 4W clear bulb in it ,that's an easy fix. I replaced the clear bulb with a green one and disconnected the + lead from the pot-meter.

I also wanted to replace the smaller 7 mm bulb in the tacho for a green one but still couldn'f find one. So I took a pemanent marker and coloured the bulb, not perfect but it looks better than the clear version.

Even the clear shelf light wasn't safe and replaced by a green version.

|Dashboard lights Volvo Amazon|
