A little update.....
My PAC SWI-JACK is defective. I can get the steering wheel buttons to interface with the unit, but the output does not work. I talked with PAC to confirm this, I am sending it back to the seller and getting a new one.
Rear speakers are installed, and I put the rear deck back together. The only speakers I have left to do are the passenger door.
I am still haveing issues getting the head unit lined up properly. I need to bring the actual mount for the deck in to work and drill out some holes a little bigger so I have some play/more adjustment to get it lined up perfectly.
I am making good progress in the trunk getting everything wired up. I just need to build a mount for my power distribution, 1 farad capacitor, and the CD changer behind the panel on the right side of the trunk. That's right, I am going to have a 6 disc CD/DVD changer on the left side of the trunk and a 6 disc CD changer on the right side behind the panels. Why? Because I can. I had an extra 6 disc changer, and my CD/DVD changer as an input on the ai-net for one, so why not?
I won't be able to do too much to it this week, the kids have too much going on. I should be able to get a lot done next week, hopefully finish it up.
