If your talking about the antenna wire, All the exposed wire is the ones coming from the trunk and from the headliner to the radio, got the rest hidden now. .

Ok a criticism as you have invited:

Looks like you have replaced the rear view mirror with a radio. And it is larger than the mirror. Is that safe? I mean a rear view mirror is a good even necessary thing to have is it not?

I would encourage you to replace the mirror and install the radio lower somewhere.

Ok I see; we are seeing the reflection of the sunroof in his mirror...alright then... still the radio will block his view of pedestrians etc. Still do not think that the radio shold be there.
