    I'm going to be installing an aux line in box so I can keep my 460 head unit. I do need a 12v power source that comes on with the key in accessory. Any good spots? Only place I can think of is the 12v that goes to the stereo. Are the cigarette/ round sockets always on?

    yes there is a switched wire at the radio. There is also more then a few in the ignition harness 12 inches away. I am pretty sure there is also a switched wire in the convertible harness that is under the console no matter if you have a vert or not. cig lighter is a constant 12v

    thanks for the tip on the convertible harness. I'll have to look into it. If I can't find it, i'll just latch onto the radio harness
