Kind of off topic (and I wouldn't want to mess with your remote holder ) but this is sort of retro-tech-ish...
Just FYI Kleenex still makes the little "Pocket Packs" of tissues that fit in that factory dispenser in your rear arm rest/cup holder. I keep the one in my Suburban stocked, it's made a few back seat passengers laugh over the years.
They might have the "travel pak" Kleenex at Walmart or your local grocery store too. I know I've seen them different places, 3 paks in a package. Walmart has their travel needs and toiletries display up now, for summer road trips.Very cool! I don’t plan on keeping the remote there, I know it would rattle. Rattles drive me insane.
When I got this car, it had the Kleenex in that holder, they were very old. I wonder how long they were in there, maybe original?
Over the years people have actually used them and it eventually ran out a few months ago. I will definitely order more!
frickin love it!I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. This is a lot of work. I have the cables run, two go up the B pillar from the Tuner interface box under the rear seat, to the monitor. The power cable and FM modulator cable run from the tuner interface to under the front dash. I had a hard time finding a spot to mount the power filter.
The service manual showed it mounted beside the steering column but I had many factory electrical connections in that area. I ended up zip tying it to the main harnesses under there. It’s secure.
The power filter harness has 4 wires. Two grounds, a constant 12 and a switched 12. I ran the two grounds to a factory ground point, where my fog light relay grounds to. The constant 12v wire was run through the firewall to the accessory stud on the fuse box under the hood. The switched 12v to turn the system on, I tapped into the radio power which also switches on my subwoofer amp. Everything looks great so far.
The FM modulator is zip tied to the dash support bar per the service manual. Extra cables were coiled and secured under there as well. I had to pull the radio to plug in the FM modulator cables and I had to use antenna adapters. The Rosen FM modulator uses the bigger sized antenna connections whereas GM uses the smaller. I was lucky enough to find the adapters at a local car audio place. They said not many people need these adapters anymore.
So far everything is working flawlessly. I skimmed through the service manual and found the IR frequency used for the wireless audio…so I bought a pair of wireless headphones accordingly. They work!
I will admit that I enjoy using the stereo for audio instead of the headphones, sounds so cool.
I’ve been sitting in the back seat watching the fast and furious, I’m sure people going by think I’m troubled…maybe I am. But I’m having a blast!
I still need to install all the trim work, but I’m enjoying this much needed break.
