The dash nuts are 5/8". Not sure about the radio retaining nuts but if I had to guess i'd say 3/4".

If you are going to be doing work on your car you might want to invest in a set of 3/8" drive deep sockets. You can get a set from Harbor Freight, Walmart or even the chain auto parts stores pretty cheap. It gets expensive buying indiviual sockets.
