    a couple questions ... concerning 93 corolla

    this is my first attempt at fiberglassing/fabrication and im putting in a 7in touch screen and the only problem im having is hooking up the reverse gear wire n also the parking brake wire can anyone point me in the direction they might be in? Also having a problem finding a way thru the firewall to allow a 0 gauge monster thru, is there one or do i have to make it?

    Well as far as running the wire through, it really depends on what car you have. For instance in my WRX there is a hole that would easily accommodate a 0 gauge wire, but in my old car I definitely would have had to drill one.

    For the reverse and parking wires, I think people tap the reverse lights wire to get that, I'm not really sure about the parking brake though..

    The parking brake wire usually requires dissasembly of the console so you can get to the hand brake pivot, where the parking brake switch should be

    On my truck, there is almost no way to get a cable through the firewall. It does have access holes on the side, like where you open the doors. Its capped by a rubber cap. I didnt like running mine in the interior so I ran mine under the car in a special track that my truck had for all the wires and brake lines.
