|Glen54||Will gladly post pictures of the finished product. Just waiting for the tray to get to M-B for the cassette holder. Not planning on doing anything interesting with the Fader control.|

I'm happy that you were able to do the job your self.
I'm wondering if you will share some final pics with us? also if you ended up "re-purposing" the fader slot in the transmission wood trim for any other use (a USB stick for example..... Like what I did!)

Really enjoying the new sound system. The Doors never sounded so good....
Regarding the rear head rests, I checked my Data Card and there they are:
SA code 430 Headrest in the Rear, Left and Right

Glen congrats on completing your stereo system project. How does everything sound now that you have 4 channel sound?
Hope all of you had a great Father's day as well!

Congrats to Glen for his successful job and adding a notch to his wrenching experience belt, and Happy Fathers Day, friends.

Happy Fathers Day to all!

Just wanted to let people know that this project is finished thanks to all the help I got through this forum. I ended up running the cables through the passenger side channels with the plastic lids. Only had to take out one seat that way. Everything is in an working, except the power antennae which has a damaged circuit board.
One side note on this project, as I'm not very experienced at working on vehicles I rely on the Haynes manual for a lot of help. So when it came time to remove the rear seat and rear seat back I went to Haynes. The manual noted that removing the seat and the seat back is only a two wrench level of difficulty so it shouldn't be a challenge. Anyway the seat came out with a bit of a struggle but I got it out. When it came to the seat back it was very difficult. I read the few lines in Haynes several times as I thought I must be doing something wrong. After much struggling and foul language my wife suggested removing the headrests. Took them out and the seat back came out very easily. I re-read Haynes again and no where that I could see does it mention removing the head rests. As I said I'm new at this. (can't you tell...)
One final note, I priced the open tray to replace the cassette holder that dolucasi noted. The cost in southern Ontario is $61 plus tax and the part has to come from Germany.
Thanks again for all the help.

If your car worth keeping, I suggest going with a double din install.
Also see the scope of work to do it.

Degrades sound quality and available power from the amp. I kept it in for originality but perhaps best to bypass it.

|Josh||Drop the knee bolster pieces on either side of the dash, and you should be able to guide the wires to the center console fairly easy enough. You may have to remove some of the ducting, but I didn't have to. Taking the glove box out on the passenger side will make it super easy to access the right front speaker.|
