There is room to curl up ~1' length on top of the HVAC controls, more than that and you can probably fit the excess behind the glovebox if you have it follow the antenna cable.

The right way is to remove the front cover and measure how you are able to route your cable. Assume the blitzsafe only gives you ~5" total to alleviate any stress that could be placed on the cable connections to the blitzsafe box. I skipped this step (lazy) and had to curl and tape up the excess.

Thanks for the quick reply. I when to RS and bought what they had. Your plug position looks great. I have the stuff now. I just need to git-r-done now.

No problem, happy to help. Just measure twice cut once when it comes to drilling that cover.

Got to work 15 mins early this morning so I decided to install this real quick. HA! (haven't drilled the hole yet, wire just comes out of the bottom of my dash) But it works great. I wound up getting one of these kits:

http://www.amazon.com/iSimple-IS335-...headphone+jack

It has a mountable headphone jack input. I plan on drilling the hole in one of my extra toggle switch blanks-- next to my rear wiper switch. I'll move it later if I need to put a switch there.

I can't believe that I waited this long to do this mod. So tired of carrying CD's around... the 90's called and wants its media back.

Thanks again.

That it awesome. Glad it is working out. Post a pic when it is drilled so people can get an idea of feasible places for the jacks.

I am looking into running a bluetooth audio receiver off the stereo power and splitting it into the audio signal. I'd really like to see if a hands-free option is possible so when the top is down and the phone rings or the phone GPS barks directions, I can hear it.
