My $7 dollar radio upgrade holdover

I need a new radio system bad however I need a seat and a new lower windshield first. I came up with a $7 radio upgrade as a hold over that makes a world of difference and doesn't look too bad. The sound of the stock radio using an mp3 player is significantly better that the radio for some reason and its way louder/clearer if u haven't tried it. Cord was $5 and Velcro was $2. I got lucky I had a harley orange mp3 player I got on discount with some Chase points a few years back.

It also lights up at night and scrolls the right way. Easier reach than radio too.
