Default Sirius satellite radio install pics?

Got a new satellite radio for christmas and just temp installed it but I'm trying to figure out ways of running the wires so it looks clean. I can't do a search because it won't let me on my iPhone and I will not be able to use a computer for a while. Do any of you have one? How did you install it? If there's pics that would be great. Thanks
merry Christmas.

I wired mine to come on with the truck.




I bought a cigarette lighter like this

Run the power wire to the power wire of your radio. Other one to the black wire of your ground. Then plug in the sat. radio adapter into this hide behind dash.





I then bought this http://www.pro-fit-intl.com/pro_fit/ford So it mounts right by the HVAC control

Found one on ebay that is the same as the link I posted.

Confused. Where did you run it out your truck? Did you follow Sirius recommendation for a pickup or do it your own way? Ive seen a pic were a guy ran it out his 3rd brake light hole then onto the roof , did you do that?

I ran it under the 3rd brake light. If you go on top u risk getting a water leak.

So I hardwired it in today. Spliced it to the fit lighter and bought adapter for my headunit so it gave me aux and USB cable because I only had USB for my iPod. Works great, ran the wiring behind bezel and then up the dash to the window mount. Looks very clean. If any one interested I'll post some pics. Plus now I don't have to power the radio on/off now it does it itself with the ignition.
