There's a dedicated CD player input in the amp? The one under the passenger seat? Or do you mean splicing into the wire harness behind the radio? What parts are you using?
I don't want to mess with the existing wiring of the car too much, since I still might go for option 2, which is just replacing the whole deck with a CarPlay deck from Crutchfield and letting them make a harness for me. I was hoping to do this on the cheap though ($25 bucks vs $450 or so).
