When you guys do a totally steath install,do you make all the wires black and put them in wireloom?Also where is the best place to hide the brain?I plan on installing the clifford intelliguard 750,and i want the install to be the best it can be.I will be in no rush..

Black tape and black loom is all you need for the job.
As to whrere the best spot to hide the brain? I would say if someone needs to remove a lot of screw to take the panels off just to get to the brain or stretch their arms just to reach it, that's a good place to put it.
Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it.how do you stealth install? -- posted image.

you could relocate the alarm brain to the trunk or under a seat or whatever your imagination tells you. just make sure that it is easily accessable for any repair or modifications you may have to perform.

I took my instrument cluster out and mounted it way up high in the small cavity back there and ran my wiring harnesses down from it wrapped in tape.

Thanks SuspendedHatch.I read your page and it was great info.I got alot of good ideas especially about mounting the siren or sirens in a place better then right under the hood.My only concern is this.I have a 98 dodge intrepid,and the battery is right down in front oh the right tire.Easy to drill the battery.I guess i'll end up putting so plating there so that the batt access is harder for a thief.Thanks for the info about the t-harness also.Am i right in saying that the t-harness is only for use when it comes to wiring in the starter kill,or does it serve more then that??

SuspendedHatch writes repeatedly in his instructions, and for good reason, BATTERY BACKUP.. AT THE LEAST get a battery backup siren. Really the units only need + and -. You don't even have to connect them to the alarm... Just constant and ground somewhere in the car. (Truck owners, shove them between the spare tire and body, lock the spare.. thief boned)...
He does have awesome ideas of concealment the only trouble is if the theif is going to go through that much trouble, he's going to have a work around. Hiding the brain so the theif can't yank the wires is great, but you've always got to keep in mind the shortcoming of the automobile itself. Majority of the alarms cut the starter wire only. Hiding where you disabled the starter wire is great, but keep in mind the theif only has to get closer to the starter. Fairly easy to simply climb underneath and short the main power wire @ the starter to the selnoid wire... Vrrrmmm.. Car started (if they crank the column already).. All your hidden work didn't help. Same if they cut the battery cables. No power. NO PAGE..
    Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying to ignore SuspendedHatch methods. I'm only trying to enforce battery backup. A stealth install is nice for when you have to go back into the dash. Also it helps keep lazy/vendictive mech from "accidently" yanking on alarms wires while doing maintanence (seen it many times). Someone pops panels and see's spaghati they're not going to want to take the time to work around it, their also likely to find it a good excuse for their parts failure (aka POOR INSTALL )..
KEEP IN MIND. Your biggest weakness is the power source. They cut the battery nothing else works.
