Dude, that was my VERY FIRST wiring job on any vehicle. If I can do it, you can do it. It is very simple and if you have a problem, throw a thread out and you will get help like I did

...if you were closer to Leon County, Florida, I'd be happy to help. Lee County is a bit of a trek from here...

but, like Clinton said, it looks a lot more daunting than it is -- the worst part is talking yourself into taking the razor blade to the headliner!

I just got done installing one in mine, and the hardest part for me was cutting the hole. Just take your time and really think out where you want to cut, always error on the side of caution and cut a little less. The wiring isn't that bad, the how to explains it pretty good. Just take your time and make sure you are on the right wire and make sure you make good connections.

You can always create a meet thread and set up a date for some one to come help.

Create the meet thread in the correct region. Give them pleanty of notice when you wanna do it.

That sucks but atleast you'll have something running. If you need the temp sensor I am selling a spare I picked up the other day so shoot me a PM if you need it
