Gday. few problems.
I'm probably going to try and install as much of my new system into my vt as i can myself and have done a bit of research.
1. I know that you take the back seats out and run the wires down under the carpet/door sills but i don't get how to get it to where the headunit is?? :hmmm:
2. I thought taking the glove box out could be an option but have no idea how to and...
3. for the side opposite to where i run the speaker wires/rca's do i run the speakers wires(front and rear door) to the front of the car and around with the other, or can i just shortcut and run them along with the battery/power cables.

cheers for any help

Honestly mate, take it to a specialist car audio store and get them to fit it......yes it will cost you a couple of hundred dollars but if you dont know what you are doing you can easily break or damage interior parts, not to mention permanently damage the equipment your trying to install.

You have the amp wiring kits etc?

You should be able to get it done properly for $300-$350. This is decent gear isnt it, not eBay brands etc?

For arguments sake, if i do do a bit of it myself or with other people, would it be the best option to take out the glovebox so i can get the rca's from the headunit to under the carpet/door sills.
That's pretty much the only thing i don't understand how to do.
