Default Hard to install aftermarket CD player?

How hard is it to install an aftermarket CD player in a 1994 SSEi? My dad and I don't have a lot of knowledge about how to install it. It would be my first mod and I would love to try to avoid installation costs.

Not hard at all. It seems complicated but when you get done you realize how simple it is. What kind of headunit are you getting? Any wiring harness kit you get will come with instructions, just follow those for your application.

I was originally going to have my dad'* BMW so we installed it in there but the car fell apart so I bought my Bonny. So, this would be an easy install for an amateur?

Ive pulled it out once so I dont think its that hard to install. They had to install some new up to date antenna or something so Im not sure how difficult that would be.

the bonneville is by far the easiest car ive installed a cd player in, heck the plastic trim around the steering wheel, climate control, and radio just pops off. with my 1.5 din pioneer it made the installation even quicker. putting together the wire harness takes the most time.
