Radio was completly stripped including the harness along with the speakers and all the wiring. My question i,s is how would i go about rewiring the radio without the harness, i wanna do it right so no hard wiring im going to have subs and dont wanna kill the battery. do i just run wires to the fuse box next to the clutch for ACC and 12V? and if so what amps are those because im seeing different diagrams and i dont wanna cut into the wrong thing anything helps thanks in advance.
 
Forget the factory wiring and read the directions on the new stereo and follow them. Our wires are far too small for a big system with a lot of watts. As Steve said, it will be much easier that way.
 
You can. It is all new so entirely up to the installer. The 12v will need to be constant and ACC switched 12v is all.
I would run new dedicated wiring for it if I were installing it, including an inline fuse so you are not depending on the fuse box fuse.
 
So I paused on installing the radio for a while since I found another issue with the car but that's for another thread. Currently running wires for wires, the person that stripped the radio took the mounts out also. Does anyone have picture of their mounts? I'm thinking about making a custom mount for it.

I'm just lookin for ideas right now.

If the harness is fully stripped out are you going to try for stock wiring or just what the current radio needs, which would make the install simpler?

Just current radio wiring, gonna make it look as neat as possible LOL
 
There are two brackets like this, on on each side.

Running new wiring will not be very hard. Just run it under the carpet for the rear speakers. You should probably go ahead and buy some interior molding clips because half of them will break when you remove them.
I got it wired in, i found the wiring harness for the headunit and speakers, it was cut almost all the way back to the main harness and wrapped with elecrical tape LOL, just need to get the speaker adapter mounts for the door and speaker cover trim for the door now.
