I left the factory stereo in it's place and run everything off my phone or iPod. I have speakers, amp and a headphone to RCA plug. I have the headphone wire running into the console bucket. I am thinking about moving it to the ashtray. So when the ashtray is open an iPhone dock will be there.

The article below explains it. It is very simple and sounds great. I will never install a stereo again.

well i finished installing the ames 185p radio looks fairly original i had to add some sheet metal on the dash since it was cut out for a din type radio and then added new aluminum trim it took as while to get things right but now it looks pretty good going to post some pics

Ok, I thought my computer was screwing up, I had the same problem. What I had to do was use my phone app to upload pics.
