Now this time, have them show you how to pull off the faceplate!
Exactly!!! It isn't that hard to do. My sister learned that the hard way...twice. Now she has the factory AM/FM Cassette player in her car. It saves you a lot of trouble, time, and money to just take 5 seconds and pull the faceplate off.

He had a dual faceplace model pioneer. It has the control and mini display that is angled out underneath the main big one. Not an easy one.

Yup, I've taken the faceplates of many other radios in the past with no problem. The one I had that was stolen had some really funky way of doing it because it was a dual faced radio...never did figure it out.

It sounds to me that you would be better off just settling for the $700+ that you can get from insurance easily. I'm pretty sure that you have no way of getting anything for the install labor since you did it yourself. Not having receipts for the rest of the incidental items would probably just drag the process out.

BTW, I definitely agree that the RF amp in question is one of their "punch" amps, from around '92 or '93 if I recall correctly. I have a 75 that looks just like that in my Regal. I remember that it wasn't all that expensive, but a good performer at the time. I'm pretty sure I still have the box from mine, but I don't know if I have the sales receipt or anything to find out just how much $$$ it cost at the time.

Just remember the real cost that an insurance claim is going to have. Ie:You may get some cash now, but increased insurance premiums for the next 3 years may set you back in the long run.

Just my opinion.

I checked with my agent before submitting the claim for just that reason. My rates will not be affected by this at all.

I had (emphasize HAD) Progressive Insurance as my company, and when I called for advice on what options I had for someone that dented my Camero, they told me that if I claimed then it would affect my premium.

I never made an insurance claim. What they didnt tell me was that by me calling them and asking them for advice about it, they listed it on my record as a "not at fault claim for $0"
Aparently thats an indiana law or something, they have to report all calls.

My premium went up $200 a year coz of that. As you can imagine, I am really upset about this !

The moral of the story is: If you claim, make sure its worth it, and claim on big stuff. And NEVER call the insurance company asking for advice.
