Well at least when it comes to electronics .
I'm switching my LI back to my summer car, and I have no idea how to wire up the power (yes it's very simply, I know, but I'm clueless). Now I'm sure your all wondering how I got it installed, I just had one of my fellow employees do it, but he's off for the next few weeks . I fabricated some nice mounts, mounted the heads and routed the wires back to the firewall (not through it yet). Car is an E30 89 325I.
Questions (all basic electronic install questions)...
Where should I go through the firewall? Just the closest hole to the drivers side?What color wires do I tap into, and which ones (where do they lead to, ignition, lights, etc.)? Will there be a ground in there, where should I look for one? On the wires that I tap into, do I just strip an area and solder the power wires to that? Or do I tap in to them at the end? Also I don't need to wire the switch, correct?
I'd post this in the how to section but I'm trying to get this done by Friday. Thanks in advance.
btw If there are any ace installers in MA who wouldn't mind helping me out, shoot me a PM.
