But I do agree with you...I did that with my Supra when I had it

White IS: back to this, I'd say sell all of them and buy a full new set, cuz it would be easier to find a buyer for the full set than just a pair...cuz whoever buys them would have to get a set of rears which you have and like you said, may not fit on your fronts

I am really interested to see your car w/ the new wheels on
Well I will most likely sell all four I think... Someone pretty local (within easy driving distance) has said they were interested too. Of course Eminence has first dibs, so we'll see what happens.

Here are some pics from the iPod adapter install.

Unplug everything from the back and pull it all out!

Plug the cable into the bottom left "socket"

And... I stopped taking pictures :fff:
For now, I have to cable that is plugged into the back of my CD Player running through the dash into my glove box. Then I just pull the cable to my phone out of the glove box and throw it back in when I'm done.

I'm leaving it as is for a couple more days, possibly a week, maybe longer lol. I want to make sure there aren't any issues with the unit and then I will find a better place to mount the box and run the cable. Possibly going to run the cable under the arm rest area (I can't think of what it's called next to my shifter and up from underneath my armrest). That way passengers in the back can access it and everything, so all the cables would be hiden.
