    looking for help

    I am looking for someone who can help me install my kenwood tm710a radio in my 2003 ford sport trac. I live in Redwater but can travel for the help. The antenna I have is a comet SSb2 with hood mount. Can't see any place to run the cable (both power and antenna) through. I did have this radio installed in a 2005 toyota Echo, but it's gone.


    thanks in advance

    How are you making out with this Mike? Are you looking for location advice, design advice or someone to straight up do the installation for you?

    Thanks for the advice...I'm still looking. I think I'll have to take the inner wheel well out to get to the firewall to see if there is anything without drilling a new hole.

    I suggest searching for something called a "body builder" manual on the Google for your year or a similar set up. I think a police rigup book should have all the information needed for adding circuits and running antenna cables.

    The search you would do to find it with google is for a "ford body builder manual". It is the book the rig up shops use to add equipment to vehicles. One version of a rig up manual could be one for a police car. I was just referring to the police version of a body builder manual and called it "police rigup book". You wouldn't find it searching for the term "police rigup book". I meant to say when you are searching for the body builder manual and you see one for a police car it would likely have what you are looking for. The website I'm posting below has some examples of body builder manuals for newer fords. If you can't find anything for your year, the newer models should be similar in many ways, especially for where they suggest running antenna cables.
