Funny, and yet NOT. That's definitely an interesting use for an oil/antifreeze container, though. Not something I would do, though, to "waterproof" the radio.

Not a bad idea considering what manufacturers consider a marine or weather resistant radio. For most of them they are nothing but a standard car radio with clear plastic tape of the top of it.

'04 1300S or at least used to be.
