This is where the hole is, looking down behind the engine near the middle.
I highlted the area.

I'll be going in again today to see where this hole leads as I still haven't been able to do it :)

Awesome Ryne!
I fed everything through and it looks awesome! Now I'm waiting to recieve my Scosche Kit and I'll be set.

I appreciate your help, that truly is a good hole :)

I also installed the aluminum gauge bezel and in a bit I'll be taking the intake silencer out.. We have beautiful weather here and I love working on the car when its like this outside

if you're using the hole i'm talking about, don't worry about where it comes out, just shove it through and you'll see it on the passenger floor. But, since I'm a nice guy, I got some photos for you. There's no way to get my camera to the point where the wire passes through the firewall, but these do well enough...
It's hidden pretty well indeed....

What's up with the rat nest up in there? :eek:

These are the almost finished pictures of the Power Wire making its way to the rear.

This is an additional picture of the bezel install I did. I had a busy weekend :D

There is already a stock wiring harness that passes beneath the plastic trimming that runs the lenght of the car by your feet. Lots of space for additional wire.

I'm still not quite finished routing the wire to the trunk, I'll be waiting for when I install the Scosche kit to take the back seats out and route the wiring the same way the stock wiring goes to the amp. I don't want to bother with removing the rear seats right now because i will have to do a lot of wiring when I actually get all my bits in.

I've got RCA cables to run to the new head unit, Scosche wiring to run to the stock amp, remote on switch for the amp (which I might just splice into the radio power), and the door speaker installation which will require me to take apart both my front doors and route everything to the rear again.

Canada... ;)

Remember to run your RCA down the other side of the car so you don't pick up feedback from the power cables
:notworthy:


Didn't see the Kmh :p

Thanks Dude.
I'm sure this thread will be beneficial to someone in the long run.

Can't tell you how much I appreciate you guys helping me..

Now i've got to fix the giant hole in the floorboards that'll fit at least 2 raccoons.
