i know its not hard to extend wires but if i see it done i wont worry about it. I have wanted to move my controls ever since i got the truck but i needed to see someonelse do it first so i feel comfortable doing it. I know that sounds dumb as shit but its how my dumb ass brain works

please please post a lot of detailed pics when you do that. I was going to move mine to the glove box in my silverado

the best thing i can say is cut, extend and solder them one wire at a time. Many of the wires in this harness have the same color and or color pattern. If you cut more than one at a time, you will screw yourself. One at a time, it's a tedious job but is pretty easy and safe.

yessir, Jay next door does the painting for me. I am not the greatest painter and it's mostly due to impatience. I like building things that dry in 10 minutes (such as things with fiberglass/body filler in them). I also don't have a booth to properly paint things in. I do all the work of course to get up to the point of painting and then he will go over it with some seriously high build primer, maybe a slight bit of sanding in a few spots. Then from there it gets shot in a very high end booth (which happens to be next door). Not to mention, it is a top of the line body shop so he can whip up any color imaginable on the spot. When i say "Jay, you wanna shoot something for me?" he ALWAYS say's "hell ya!"....so he is who i go to :D

much respect to my buddy Jay next door for ALWAYS being ON IT for me! I can't wait to go see this piece dried later today :D

Today's update - It's done!

Headunit relocated to stock cassette deck location.
HVAC Relocated to the center console. The plug with 24 wires on it was extended about 3-4 feet. That is 48 solder joints (with heat shrink). I made Antheny do it. He is good at soldering so i feel safe with him doing it. While he was doing that, i started making room for the Sony deck. Also, the Sony has built in USB on the face AND a wire on the inside. It is designed to be a hideaway spot for an ipod since it isn't a CD player. Pop the face down and there is a spot to plug in and hide whatever MP3 player will fit. It is the PERFECT place to plug the ipad into so we were able to get sound through the lightning cable and usb. Plus it charges good too! I had to tear the deck apart, find the wire and re-route it to the outside of the unit so we had access for the ipad.

anyhow, here are the rest install pics. Hope you like! Youtube video probably tomorrow. I am tired!

I don't just make stickers with my vinyl plotter. I have used it several times for templates and (behind the acrylic) covers/openings. This here is just to keep paint out of the 1" 3/4 hole for the VU-Din Needles to shine through. I don't want to see any circuit board so i shot it from the back. From the front you can't even tell it was painted. That's the beauty of doing these like this. Had i painted the front it would have looked like hell.

This usb cable used to be behind the front face plate, inside the unit. I took it apart and re-routed the wire to the outside so we could access the wire for the ipad.

This is a pretty good spot.
