      Anyone do this themselves? I have the wires, but am thinking about going to a car stereo store unless this is a snap to do yourself. Anyone have experience?

      if you mean like a passport thats about 2k, its a pain to wire, also 99% i have never seen a radio shop install anything with out breaking things.

      and black tape is not an insulator.

      If you are asking the question, it probably means you are not comfortable doing it.

      There are a couple other threads talking about wiring things in, including Jdraper's on wiring in a homelink panel into the headliner. Good information there.
