Items installed: Installation Description

First was the CD player, the car only had a radio when I puchased it. I ordered the custom adaptor from Crutchfield. Then I had to buy new speakers (front doors and rear deck). When I put them in I also installed the amp, capacitor, and subwoofer enclosure.
