Default my project

I've decided its time to do a little work on the stereo in my truck (currently stock)

i bought these about a week ago from crutchfield and they came in last night.



i took some time to solder up the new wiring harness today at work



i pulled the old head unit and put this one in today, its not fully hooked up yet, ill post pics once its a little bit lighter out side and some of the other wires have been pulled in (the Bluetooth mic has been run and the iPod cable has been run.

I'm planning on pulling the iPod cable into the glove box and mounting the Bluetooth mic somewhere around the steering column (any other suggestions?)

I'll keep you guys updated on my progress i might not get another chance to take a crack at it until Sunday

Very nice. What about running the mic up to the headliner to just by the visor?

I've used a punch to punch a hole in the bottom part of the glove box and run the ipod cable





then made a makeshift grommet out of ducktape to stop stuff from falling out of the glove box.

A little late, but you didn't have to put a hole in the glove box. I just slung the wire over the side of it for my iPod cable.
