I know this has quite a few posts, but until you actually do it - a few things I noticed.
Make thru hole with radio out to avoid plastic ribs – and make hole with awl first then just twist the drill with your hand – the plastic is very thin and easy to work with. Use a vacuum to clean up plastic bits as you go.
Using a 12 Volt Power Adapter, modified and made my own harness to fit the length required.
From there it’s an easy routing (you can route behind with OEM harness bunch or in front as I did (blue sleeving) and thru the dash with a grommet installed.
