I don't know, my friend was like can you do this?
And I did it for him.
this is truly a stroke of genius. great pics. do you have any of the final install?
he has the car.
I didn't take pics of the final install. I've been busy playing with my car.
I'm going headunitless on my car so headunits and doing this is useless for me.
BTW, I learned how to solder in 8th grade when a friend of mine who's father worked for Grumman. He was always making stuff. He one day was like you wanna try to make a FM transmitter? And I was like sure.
We went out to radio shack bought resistors, a electric mic, and some other stuff like variable resitors and I couldnt find a coil so I made my own.
Anywayz, the best tip is to heat up both ends to be soldered first then touch then together and apply the heat. Use as little solder as possible. I've been doing that technique since 8th grade and it works great. I think it's called tinning?

Thaks for the info, that projet looks tight.
No, you heat up both sides and coat it with solder.
Then touch both coated things together and apply heat and it will fuse them both together.
That's incredibly a good idea! That makes things SO much easier! I need to find someone in my area that can do that for me (I have shakey hands). I'm kickin' myself in the *** for not thinking of that! Thanx!

Looks like new... Wanna know why they call me "Crash"?
i dont think its called tinning.... but whatever its called..its probably the easiest way to do it (melt solder onto both parts.... then push them together while applying heat)
i believe tinning is when u melt a small amount of solder onto the tip of the soldering iron.... if u dont do this , heat wont transfer as well
