Infinimount Shaft/Bracket System: The Infinimount
Shaft/Bracket System allows you to mount the Hermosa radio in a variety of
classic cars. This is because the shaft-knobs are not mounted to the unit, but

knobs at various distances (0.3125"-2.1875") from the chassis of the radio,
using the supplied side-mount brackets. You can move these brackets forward or
backward and move them in any direction. You can even cut, trim, or bend the
brackets if needed. This shaft-style radio is a true problem solver for tough to
fit applications due to its unique bracket system combined with small mounting
