Default Sharp GF-7700 -Project Bluetooth

I was given this 20+ years ago from a friend and it’s sat in my shed ever since. I think Now’s the time to give it a good clean up and add Bluetooth. Any tips on how best to achieve this On a budget would be grateful

If it has an Aux line level input, just connect a Bluetooth module to that.

Iíve stripped it, cleaned out the cobwebs and dust, put it back together. Everything works perfectly. Now to find a cheap Bluetooth adapter which I guess goes in the Ext Mic port? and 8x rechargeable D batteries.
