Um the install i just did, i'm not proud of it.
I didn't even want to do it, but after being nagged for over a week i just did it.
I was MADE to cut the factory harness out because she didn't want to spend the money to buy an adaptor. Spend 300$ on a hu but can't cough up the 10$ for a harness?
It don't look to bad, i soldered and shrink wraped everything. i just dont like cutting the factory harness up for no reason other then your to cheap.

O wait gus1...  Were we supposed to look at the tangle of wires?  Sorry I was too busy looking at the poster.  Just kidding, well not really.  Did the alarm even work though?
That's my opinion. Take it, leave it, or correct me.

Heh.... yeah, hopefully the Directed calender next year looks as good.
That alarm came from a large shop that starts in "A".... cust. even had the reciept as proof.
Here's a couple more winners from last week:

Came out of an 05 Canyon... some Black Widow 2way thing that was killing the battery on a very regular basis. Customer is very happy with his Valet 562T

Apparenty electrical tape is rather expensive in SK. I will give them credit for using 3 different sizes and colors of Marrettes :-) Gotta fit the wire sizes, y'know. We see a lot of this type of thing from dealer tradeins (excellent relationship with 4 dealers here.... we do at least one car a day for at least one of them)
Stuff like this is pretty much par for the course for some "shops" in this area, and there are a lot of DIY'ers in this area that end up bringing their cars in when they finally give up. Kind of a job security thing.....
