Hi, i want to put the original Blaupunkt stereo back into my mk1 scirocco, it used to work ok but it never had any knobs.

does anyone know where i can source some replacements, i've looked on ebay without much luck.

Or if anyone has the same stereo for sale i'd be interested???

Have a look at Maplin and RS, then hunt down any other suppliers of electronic stuff... There're vintage radio specialists (car and home) that could be worth a go... Thing is: Do you know what they're menat to look like?

i've had a look at some stereos on german ebay, so have a rough idea, if i find any maplins or vintage radio specialists local'ish i think i'll just take stereo with me and hopefully find something suitable.

thanks for the info......much appreciated.

You're likely to find the shank size is standard... If they're just a round shank, you'll be looking for either collet type or set screw. If they're splined shank (don't look it from the pic) you can still use either of those type or push on.
