    The soldering and heat shrink look real tight, It should hold up very well. Did your dad show you how to solder, or did he lose patience with you and just do it himself. My dad lost patience with me when he was trying to teach me, but I am a quick learner and did all right on my own. I bet your excited to get it all wired in now, I am sure this will only light the fire for future audio upgrades.

    step 1: disconnect battery
    step 2: put steering wheel in lowest position
    step 3: take dash bezel off, it just pops off, and looks like this


    step 4: remove the 3 screws holding the stock head unit in place

    step 5: plug wiring harness in to the aftermarket harness
    step 6: take new ground from ne radio and screw it into the mounting bracket
    step 7:mount up mounting kit
    step 8 find a spot for cd changer, mine had to be mounted behind the seat in the vertical position

    step 9: remove the interior panels, first the one behind the rear seat, then the door still, then the rear piller panel, and last but not least, the kick panel.
    step 10: route cable with the other wiring behind the interior panels
    step 11: place panels back to their spots
    step 12: route changer cable up into the dash and to the head unit
    step 13: connect every cable to its correct place
    step 14: re-connect battery and test the new equipment
    step 15: re-assemble dash


    i forgot to take pictures of every step, but i did take some. this was pretty easy, and so far im happy with the new unit

    Looks good so far, the CD changer is a nice clean addition. I am so surprised that you didn't try to color match the dash while you had it out, but maybe some day down the road.

    thank you, im not a fan of the color matched dashes, i like the texturedness (if that s a word) that the stock one has
