ok thanks for that, the radios out but the two wiring plugs are a bit confusing, the little one has red, yellow and black which i assume are for power, accesory power and ground but the other plug makes no sense at all, theres usually four sets of pairs for the speakers but the colours on this one are not logical to me anyway, i would be greatfull if anyone has a listing of these wires and colours or know of any wiring diagrams on the net i have search but cant find any cheers once again

Absolutely. Get the wiring harness adapter, it just might be the best money spent in your system. :) I know that it's the best $9 that I put into MY system.

For the size of the opening, most stereo shops will have a DIN sized pocket that will cover the lower half of the stereo opening, unless you purchased a double-DIN sized head unit in the first place.

If you play your cards right, you'll end up with an aftermarket deck in your dashbvoard that looks like Toyota put it there back in '91 or '92 when your car rolled off the assembly line.

I've had several different decks in the dash of my Supra, some for test purposes, and, of course a couple that have stayed for a while.

Enjoy the tunes, and I wish putting a 6.5" speaker was as easy in my doors as it is in yours!
