No the hood was like that when I got it. Worse part about it is that the guy said its had nice patina but he decided to just spray primer on it. going to see if I can get it back to the matching color.

I'd try the Easy Off technique to see if you could get back to the original paint.

Stripped some of the black primer off but the color under did not match so I decided to give her a little better color. Not 100% match but came out pretty good.

The radio has an aux input which just had a standard cable with a mini plug end. The hole was already in the dash from the switch for the fan (which is no longer there) so I just bought a coupler and it was almost a perfect fit for the existing hole and connected the existing cable to it.

Looking good!

If you are ever needing parts, I have had quite a few 71's so I have a pretty good stash of stuff....
