Angry DIY wiring!!!!

Well my stereo finally packed up and i went and bought a new 1 today as a treat for the car, heres where it begins im not good with electrics anyway and bought the adaptor thinking it would be plug and play.

Now im no expert but what i seen was an absolute shambles of wiring and to be honest how the cars not went up in flames ill never know.

theres more scotch locks, twisty connections and insulation tape than i have ever seen, also it looks like the original wiring has been half arse connected to adaptor wiring and it really is just a feckin shambles.

Needless to say i have taped up all the open wiring and will have to get someone who knows what there doing to sort it for me!

Rant over!

Sounds exactly the same as mine. I spent a bit of time a couple weeks ago tidying it up and getting rid of all the crappy in-line connectors.
