Default Stock Stereo Ipod Input Mod

I'm not in any position to give advice on this mod, but I was wondering who would be interested in doing this one day this summer? aCiD was nice enough to do a write up and I though with each others help we could all do it together. aCiD had mentioned that if he'* available he may be able to give us guidance. Here is the link as to what'* involved. Please indicate where you're interested in doing this?

This looks simple enough. I think I might give it a try. I have a cassette deck so I haven't got a lot to lose. The only question that I have is, why do you need the relay? Couldn't you simply run the wires out to a manual double pole-double throw switch to transfer the signal?

Are you in Canada or the US Phill? What year of Bonne were you going to try it on? When were you thinking of trying it?

I am in Canada and am the guardian of a 98 Bonneville SE. It is my daughters car so I have to get approval, but I think she would like to have her Ipod work with the factory stereo. I probably won't tackle this job for another month or two. I expect to be quite busy with a few other jobs. Are you considering this mod?

Maymybonnevilleliveforever,
Sorry about that. I live in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

I reviewed the information on hackaday.com. That looks interesting, but my radio is a little older than his. I am not looking for anything too fancy. I just want an interface for an MP3 player or IPod. I am going to read a little more before I try it.

I didn't read hackaday.com since I don't want to get more confused than I already am. I'd like to do it to my stock cd stereo in the 95 SSEi, but first I need to find someone that can walk me through it. It was suggested I try it at NEBF, but so far I haven't found anyone that'* going there that can help to the point where I don't have to drive back without a stereo installed and have to explain that to the boarder patrol.

If your wire is really well shielded, and you want the extra wires coming outta the stereo.

Plus the sound of the relay switching is too good to pass up
