Hello, it`s time for new images :D

Project is not finished, but you can see what i have done so far.

4 speakers replaced with other pioneer speakers and connected straight to amplifier.

Yes, keep 'em coming!
Great to see, and I really like the door handles....
I have to fix mine sooner than later - how did you do this?

I would mount the amp on one of the interior trunk/boot walls to save floor space. Looking good.

How did you find ACC and wiring diagram? Think I'm going to do this too.

Here's what I found on another site:

L dash: + brown, - brown/gray
R dash: + brown/black, - brown/red

L door: + yellow/white, - orange/white
R door: + gray, - brown/red

L rear: + brown/white, - brown
R rear: + brown/green, - brown/white

Need to check that though.

This from Saba @ AMP1 under seat:

Left + Green
Left - Grey/ White

Center + Violet/ White
Center – Yellow/ White

Right + Blue
Right – Grey/ White
