ive seen em done ive never done one. Google it. and im sure the aftermarket wiring harness makes everything simplier than it looks.. Im quessing u cut the wires going to the tape deck as they are not needed and just worry about the wires going to the "radio" its self. Shouldnt be much differant than a normal radio

But new radio, buy wiring harness. Plug harness into OEM plug, match wire colors to aftermarket radio. Mount radio, reinstall trim stuff. Enjoy radio.

Your RADIO is in the trunk? I think you mean your CD changer.
