    If you dig around the cig lighter area there is usually a spare plug kicking around with a perm feed on! (its the same as the cig lighter plug)

    Lol, you genuinely had the thought of running a wire from the engine through the bulkhead and up behind the dash before any idea about the stereo constant live? Are you one of these folk who can take their pants off before their jeans P
