Installed Sirius Starmate

Hey, sweet tutorial! Very good, informative pics. I recently installed my iPod using the IceLink so it was similar to your install. I was surprised at the ease of install--after getting past the "I'm tearing down my brand new car" phase.

BTW, it's nice to see another fine member of the Auto tranny club

Oh man, luckily my brother has a beat up 96 accord which he has taken everything off of it and he helped me out so i wasn't too scared...but i can't lie. taking the shift cover off was a little scarry! lol

i had an old mazda 626 that was a manual. i just wanted a break from it for a while.

as much as i didn't want to, i ended up sticking it on the back center roof, where they put the new accord's factory xm antenna. It runs behind the drivers seat to the trunk then i led it out the back drivers side corner of the trunk, near the hitch) Hopefully i can get it painted the satin silver to match the body color. but for now i don't mind it too much. it started raining pretty bad before i could take some photos of it.

I got sirius installed in my 6th gen. kinda a janky rig, but i finally got the xa-300 to hard wire it to my deck, so i'm prolly gonna move it soon. you're looks a lot cleaner, especially cause you guys got that door on the cubby. nicely done though

You will need a ground loop isolator to eliminate the alternator whine.
