Do you own the new headunit? install instructions came with my pioneer one. You need to wire up the headunit's loom and bolt it to some brackets that hold it in place.

go to autobarn and get the adapter plugs makes it so much easier it costs like $30 all up and it becomes plug and play, it will need a plug from the factory ford plug to pionner and another plug which is from the back of your h/u to the pionner plug, sounds wired but thats what ive got. check the aerpro website http://www.aerpro.com.au/

A JVC headunit that I bought brand new from JB-Hifi about 2 months ago didn't come with the iso plugs at the end of it's wires.

I bought that aeropro cable thing, cut it in half and soldered the end that plugs into the factory plug in the car to wires on the stereo.

Would strongly recommend you do the above if you don't have the iso plug at the end of the wires on your headunit.

join the colours up speakers gnd const n remote power not sure bout the power antenna stuff u might have to find the wiring diagram for the head unit

wack on some heat shrink before u solder the wires

solder them up heat shrink over use a lighter repeat that a few times for all the wires do make sure ur doin the right ones or sumthing may go pop there is a colour diagram on the aeropro harness which tells u what is what
