Do you have any friends that are good with electrical work?

This is definitely an installation that you want to take your time on and not to rush it. My advice is to triple check your installation especially on the connectors were the pins are removed and replaced.

Good luck

Pretty easy. Watch the video twice and have it available on a laptop while doing the installation. Also, print off a copy of the install notes by Ninjaneer and have those available while installing. Good luck and don't drive too fast.

No worries on the install. I was freaked out too until I did it.... Just keep the laptop close and go step by step. You'll be fine.

Installing the PROcede is not scary at all. Just follow the installation video and don't try to be "creative" at all.

If you don't like to do it by yourself or alone, ask a car hi-fi shop to assist. They have the skills you are looking for.

Cheers
Eugen
