The builder didn’t provide anything to mount accessories around the electrical panel. Most builders (obviously not all) give a plywood surface to mount the phone demarcation point and satellite/cable lines. Since organization makes life easier, …a plywood panel needed to be installed. This was a little more involved than just adding a piece of plywood […]
With the mounting plate finished and painted, the stereo system was completely installed. The system sounds great great (4x50w) and the iPod integration works terrific. Surprisingly this was an easy installation, and only took 3-4 hours (total time).
I finished the installation of the Fiero sub woofers, and powered up the SST radio for a test run. I still have a wiring mess to hide, …but it sounded great!
I finished mating the SST harness to the Fiero radio harness. I bought the Fiero radio harness off eBay for $5. It allows you to adapt any radio harness to the stock harness. It also allows quick disconnect/reconnect for servicing – all without cutting any wires.
My new audio system arrived in the mail the other day. It is called the Secret Audio SST – “Stealth Sound Technology”. In other words it is a radio system designed for vehicles without a standard radio/deck DIN size.
I need to install the interior door panels, …and finish installing the sound system, …but aside from those two elements, the interior is done.
I have completed the wiring of the alarm system. With all the black wire-loom, it looks like something from a sci-fi movie. I have also started painting the dash support pieces to match the rest of the interior trim.
This was not as hard as I thought it would be. There was a previous alarm system installed in the Fiero, so most of the wires were pre-marked for tapping. Plus I did extensive research before hand. The alarm is working perfectly. Now I just need to make the wiring look “pretty”.
The original harness was cut for a custom stereo installation. I used a stock harness I pulled from a local yard to repair it back to OEM.
