Before you start, Here is the link to the original thread:

Also, here is a parts list:
JDM Double Din adapter
3 harnesses from SVX Dc
-14 pin audio cable
-i88 adapter harness
-i85 adapter harness(this is only needed for steering wheel controls, OEM Nav, OEM Aux in, some factory subs, and/or Dimmer cancellation)
JDM Hazard switch(optional, but I will be using it)

First Pull out your old radio, do a search, if you don't know how to do this.
Wire in your 14 pin harness and i88 harness with your new radio harness:
Next, Cut out part of your dash...



Install your hazard switch on the faceplate(2 screws):

File in 2 places to allow for closer alignment:*NOTE file on both left and right tabs(one side of tab)

Bottom of HVAC module:

Top of shifter bezel:

Assemble your HVAC, Faceplate, and Radio; as the instruction that came with the kit note there should be 3 screws for each side:

The wire(black) that came with the kit needs to be attached to one of the screws going into your radio.

Install the assembly into your car, making sure everything is plugged in. Re assemble and your done

Special Note, This is the "simple" version, if you have steering wheel controls, nav, etc. you may or will need to do more things to keep functionality. You may also paint the shifter bezel to match the black HVAC, like the photo above. Please refer to the link above for more information.
