Today was crazy. My first ever attempt at a car audio system. I'll list what I have done this far:
1. Replaced sound bar and front speakers (last week)
2. Ran power from the battery to the amp, wired the amp and sub - still need to find a good ground location
3. I soldered in the harness with the new stereo (Clarion CX501) via a wiring harness I purchased today. (Praying I did it right!)
4. Steering wheel control module needs to be installed and programmed (programming part is easy)
That is pretty much it. The dash is totally ripped out, as is carpeting but that is easy to re-install and I can do it myself.
Just looking for someone to look over my shoulder the rest of the way. I am in Sudbury, near Framingham. Of course you would be rewarded (money or otherwise).
