I started by dimanteling the radio we had been given. There were only a few screws to take off the outer casing to get to the circuit board. It is a simple FM/AM radio from Amazon and there is a link below. For my radio i discarded the outer casing ( apart from the battery holder which i chopped down as small as possible) and just kept the circuit boar and the speaker. I took the volume control and the tuning control off the circuit board and re-wired them with longer wires. this will give me room to put these controls in different places.
