Default Where can I find a good write up on hardwireing a V1

I just picked up my 2005 STi last week. Now I want to put the V1 in it.

Is there a good resource area for write ups?

(Yes I am new to Subarus, but not all wheel drive turbo cars)

1) get a phone cord.
2) cut one end off
3) strip the 2/4 wires on the inside
4) grab 2 at a time and hold to 9v battery. you'll have correct connections when v1 clicks
5) mount v1 above rear view mirror
6) run phone cord along top of windshield, down a-pillar, under steering column and into center council
7) tap into cig lighter
8) solder then cover w/ electric tape

^^^
You don't even need to go through that trouble. It comes with a hardwiring adapter, so you don't need to deal with stripping wires for it.

And you can wire it into the harness that's used for the auto-dimming rear view mirror, no need to run wires down the A-pillar or anywhere other than 3" through the space between the headliner and the roof.

Lightbulb V1

Get the remote indicator direct from Valentine One, mount it in the slot on top of your steering column against the dash display, then mount your V1 as suggested above your rear view mirror, then you have the best of both worlds. All the wiring directions and connections are included with the remote display from Valentine One.
