Hi Michael

I used one of these - http://www.retrosound.com/product-p/1950-54-hpa1.htm

Despite the manufacturer claims that it works "almost anywhere", it did not provide good radio reception when I installed it under the dash. Possibly too much EM interference from the old electrical components under the bonnet. It worked much better when I reinstalled it on the rear inner wing behind the vinyl trim, and ran the cable along the side of the sill under the foot well carpet. The reception is still not 100%, but it's good enough (for what is quite a noisy car), and they are phasing out FM radio here in the UK anyway, so as from next year it'll be MP3 only...

Hope this helps.

Best wishes,
Nigel
