The bottom rails by the doors just pop up and the bottom seat must be pushed in toward the trunk , then raised .

Awesome, thanks for the comments, you too Will, that was to easy taking out the head unit bout 5 min. the most time was connecting all the wires. 1 more qestion with the amp, it says it bridgeable 1,2,3 channels. I got 2 subs that I want to bridge, do I put both speaker wires on the bridge part. Like both negatives on the negative bridge and both positives on the positive bridge. This should be the last question.

I got a cheap amp and cheap subs. The amp is a Pioneer GM-X572 400 Watts. The subs are Jenson 10'inchs which hanlde 175 watts RMS each. The amp can handle 100 Watts by 2 at 2 omhs. Thats why I want to bridge both of them to get the most power I can to them both.

I ran my amp line under the car and came in throught the strut tower. Drilled a hole way up top, a little primer on the hole and some silicon sealant after the wire comes in and whamo! It took me 5 minutes to hook it up. I gently attached the power lead to the brake lines dowm the passenger side of the car with zip ties...lots of them. Clean, unseen and no ripping apart the interior to do it.

So I would run it under the passenger side? Where would I put the power cable down thru, the enigne compartment, I guess I'm asking for a more detail of what you did, please and thank you. Where at in the sturt did you drill, and how big of drill bit where you using. I want to do this once and right the first time. See the problem I have with drilling in the fire wall is I don't know where and I don't know how I would put the power cable around thru the eninge compartment. Any segs. would help.

Neverimind with the coments anymore. I put it in myself, I'm so proud. Not as hard as I thought. Took like 2 hours to do it, but If I new what I know now it would have taken me like 30-45 minutes.
