That Sirius hookup looks very nice. I need it! (my radio fell off the windshield again and its too cold for the mount to stick)

Can u explain it in detail so I can replicate that?

My complete Sirius install list is as follows.

1 Bracketon Universal vehicle mount (Best Buy caries, also seen on the net).
1 Sirius Vehicle Kit (the one that came with the Sirius)
1 Sirius Direct FM Module (for static free music)
2 Radio Antenna adaptors (FM Module plugs are to big for the stock Bonne radio, can be bought at Best Buy if they have an Car Install Center)

Installing all in all took about an hour, I finally received everything I needed today to complete the install.

Step 1:
Remove the radio dash panel. Simply pull, no screws. And remove the cover under the passenger front seat.

Step 2:
Install the Sirius Satellite antenna. I placed mine inside the car, next to the third brake light. I ran the wire behind the back seat, and then ran the wire under the door trim on the floor, all the way to the front passenger front seat.

Step 3:
No for my car, I have a wireless remote control system for my neons that is powered straight to my battery. I picked up a cig lighter plug in and connected the Sirius cig lighter power adapter straight to that.

That is all located under the cover in the front passenger seat. You re on your own on how you want to power your Sirius, you can do what I have (I can give out info on how to do that if you want it).

Step 4:
Remove your radio and install the FM Module (its a simple install, just plug in). Place the module behind the radio.

Step 5: Putting everything back.

Now take your Satellite antenna wire and the power wire and run it under the dash behind the ash tray (I have a console shifter) and then behind the radio.

Place the radio back and make sure the 3 wires (FM Module, antenna, power) are above the radio.

Place the dash panel back and run the wires along the panel sides and up.

Step 6:
Once everything is back together, slide the Bracketon Universal vehicle mount between the dash panel you had removed earlier and where the cig lighter is. The Mount will slide right in and make a nice fit.

That'* it in a nut shell. Let me know if you need images, I suck at explaining. :P

And one thing I learned with the Sirius, if you use the cassette adaptor (like I did tell today) you get no bass. Which is why I got the FM Direct module.
