Anyone find a wiring harness for their E, while installing an aftermarket deck. Found a dash kit, but looks just as easy to make one out of stainless, make it look better. Please let me know where you got your wiring harness, as I dont want to cut the fctory wiring.

You can avoiding cutting wire (if no compatible harness found) by purchasing Wire Tap-ins. You might still need to cut main power, I have not faund the Wire Tap-ins size for these.

I got a wiring harness from Circuit City 3 weeks ago. It is a standard honda wireharness so everyone should have them. I am amazed that you found a dash kit. I went to 3-4 different places to get one with no luck. I ended up making my own brackets and altering a standard honda face plate just to get it working.

Where did you get the dash kit?

I found the dask kit on line. I'll post a short cut later. I have the Y element which I think is the EX in the states. The wiring harness should have the amp pre outs on it like a prelude wiring harness.

When I got my stuff from Crutchfield (www.crutchfield.com), they included adapters for the stereo harness and adapters for the speakers. It worked wonderfully.

Here is the link for the dash kit I found. I emailed them about the wiring harness a week ago. Still have not heard from them
