I bought the car a few weeks ago and quickly realized how much I miss things like bluetooth for my cellphone and music from my iPod. I had an old Dension iPod dock that once was installed in a previous vehicle. I also had a Parrot bluetooth kit that was in my Solstice before I put a Pioneer navigation system in it. All I needed were the right wire harnesses and mounting plate for the iPod dock.

Taking apart the dash was not hard. This car had see a lot of sunlight which made the plastic brittle. All the upper mount lugs broke off.
The center console worked well for hiding all the wires and modules.
While I had everything torn apart, I figured it was a good time to mount the ScanGauge as well. A couple of zip ties holds it firmly in tape/CD storage area. I split the storage and filed a notch to make it easier to run the wires.
Here is the final result. Everything worked like a champ!
