I gave up on searching here - so here it goes. I need to run a wire from the trunk to the front of the car - driver side.
I can get it past the back seat by lifting up the seat cushion (and I assum fish it though) door sill - is the only option to pull the black plastic off the door sills and fish it through - ? where would it come out? can I then fish it all the way to the pedal area?
Besides teh DICE ipod site, anyone know of some good photos for doing all of this?
well that's interesting - I dont think the wires were made to be external for one, particularaly under a car...? Also, how are all the speaker and CD changer wires ran? I know they go along the door sill I just dont know how to go about doing it. Thank you for the interesting idea though!
For my subwoofers to my headunit, I actually used the passenger side. I went under the seats, and through the door sills, I think that is the best way. I haven't really heard of people going under the car, but if you did I assume you would need some thick insulation, or something like that.
If you use the door sills it will come out right before your cars kick panel speaker cover, I assume your car has those? I also took off the kick panel cover, so it couldn't be seen.

for me, i just went under the back seat, straight under the center console and up... it wasnt too bad... just remove the ash tray and then theres a nice place to make a midway point to feed your fish through... then re install the ash tray when your done...
