Default 2k1 install

i am attempting to put a kenwood excelon deck in my 2k1 bonne. i have a wiring harness from "the kit experts" bought at American Electronics. there are 2 yellow constant wires, 3 black ground wires, and 6 brown dimmer wires. i am unsure of where they are to be hooked up at. is there somewhere else that i could go to purchase the wire harness that would make this an easier install. i am also wondering about the dash kit. i also bought "the kit experts" but the factory deck has 4 clips holding it in. the dash kit only came with screws and am not sure how to do this. again if there is another place to purchase a dash kit that is easier to use let me know. i would appreciate any help anyone can offer.

Try Crutchfield. They seem to have a better grip on the correct mounting hardware and wiring harnesses.

Go to Circuit City. They have a new harness that they only make. Tell them your make & mnodel of both car & headunit and they will give you they wire harness already done. All you gotta do is plug it in. Thats what we used on my friends Cobra install. Took 2 min. to install the headunit.
