Back on the 2
Decided to address the exhaust leak and the head unit. Turns out the wiring that was spliced in was so wrong. Took ages to fathom out and the lack of the earth didn't help. I also needed to run a 12v feed from the head unit into the wire that feeds the Toyota amp too or nothing works. Also wierd how there's no speaker negative wires? We t cut the bifmg quarter panel dent too. The ns sill will be next and I'll spray the side plastic too once it's filled etc

This was the wiring guide I used. It's a fine but you need to add the feed from the head unit ie aerial feed etc into pin 1 to make the Toyota amp work.
