FYI, I did notice one thing different when I connected up the wiring harness yesterday. The male connector with the red plastic tab would not fit into the slot on the lower LH side but it did mate with the Black connector on the bottom of the radio. I thought that was strange. Anyway every thing works now.

Hmmm. Did you have connectors in all four quadrants of the top connector on the old radio?

That bottom connector is for the steering wheel controls, HVAC VF dimmer and a data line.

Do all of the front and rear speakers work OK?

If you can't see the lens just take a can of compressed air with the little extender/'coffee cup stir stick'and hose it down (well with air)

Sure did. When I started hooking it up that was the first male connector I tried to plug in and it would't fit. WTF, over? Plugged in the other three connectors with no problem. Well let me try that black one on the bottom and it fit perfectley. Before I mounted it to the dash I tried the Bal and Fade controls thru their full range and all speakers were working correctly. So far no problems yet. Even the backlit red lighting works. Looks nice to see all that red lighting at night.

I have a spray can called CleanSafe that I use on my computer and other electronic equipment. I will throw a shot of compressed in it for good measure. I figured the unit has probably sitting on some shelf the past few years collecting dust.

...except for the Power button, which lights up yellow. I love that effect; it looks really aircraft-y...

If you squint at it, you can also see there'* a little red dot at either end of the CD slot, presumably to help you find it in the dark, although I usually manage to do it by feel anyway. I kind of wish I had a changer in the trunk instead, but I prefer keeping the car all original.

Same here. I noticed those red dots. Think I will try and get a night pic of that red (aircraft) dash.
