this is all good if you are gonna only use it while you are driving, if you are planning on just sitting there with your sterio on, you will burn out your points.

You can usually take acc from a light, but if u do and a light fuse is burnt out u lose power on your stereo, get a power tester and switch the ignition to acc then test wires for power, once u you find a wire with power switch the ignition to off and see if there is still power coming from the wire, if there isnt then bingo u have an acc wire.

One of those gold plated battery terminal + (for looks only of course) and run wire around the engine bay near some other wires. Get it to the Holes in the firewall and take a bit of time getting it though without butchering the rubber grommit in the firewall. Now this would go straight to the extra unused fuse position in the fuse box.(get another fuse box from a wrecked car so you have the extra metal pins) From the other side of the fuse to the stereo red wire(chuck the supplied fuse in too) Earth can come from the body. Check the fuse supplied with the stereo or manual and get wire and fuse to suit+. This would be good if you plan to add stuff.

UR COMMENT IS WRONG THAT IS FOR 12V POWER NOT ACC! ACC IS USED AS A TRIGGER WIRE, TO TELL THE STEREO TO TURN ON, NOT TO POWER THE MOTHER [Naughty Pottyword]ER! YOU WILL BLOW YOUR STEREO IF U DO IT THAT WAY!
