    Ahh another newbie who wants to be spoon fed

    If you want to learn then start doing some searches on the forum and READ UP

    and for christs sake go to the newbie forum before some of our regular irritable users see this post

    There is a link in the bottom of my sig.... check it out.
    Read the Newbie forums like everyone else said....

    oh... and duck.... a big spoon is headed your way, and not in a feeding sorta way, more like a "biatchslizzap" sorta way.....

    Good luck, if you have any specific questions ask in the newbie forums.

    Then start doing your research before purchasing to include the following:
    - Defining exactly what you want the system to do (GPS, MP3, Relay controllers, etc.)
    - Do a wiring diagram for power/audio/video/etc lines
    - Ensure that your component selections 'work' together - how, by asking questions or researching

    And finally, after accomplishing all of this, research prices and make the purchases.
    Then you can start ripping into your car. If you don't have any skills in mechanics or electronics then get them. Go to school, teach yourself, surround yourself with friends that have a clue, whatever it takes to have a KNOWLEDGEABLE person doing it.

    Then install it all and have fun. Short and sweet. I have been working on it for around 6 months now without an install.

    It is a fantastic hobbie that will rock your socks off.
