I have a double din aftermarket clarion deck in my g6 with monsoon system.
I didnt want to use the ugly metra faceplate dic unit.
Ive seen some pictures of some people relocating the dic metra unit somewhere hiddin and i want to do this as it would be nice.
Does anyone have any links of how to wire this metra in?

No links but I'll explain how to do it. To put it into the glovebox, first get some wire (preferably the same gauge as the metra wire). Begin by cutting one of the wires on the metro harness. Strips the freshly cut ends of the wire. Cut roughly a foot and a half of wire from the wire you bought. Strip both ends of the wire. Solder the end of the one metra wire to the end of your wire (if you don't have a soldering iron I guess you could just twist the wires together) do the same with the other end of the cut metra wire to the remaining end of the cut wire. Wrap the soldered joint in electrical tape. You now have one extended wire for your metra harness. Do this with the rest of the wires on the harness except for the black wire that runs from one connector that attaches to the metra kit to the other connector that attaches to the metra kit. Take the glove box off the glove box door and cut a hole in the back of it (or you can do like I did and just remove the box completely and not reuse it). Run the now extended wires fro
Behind the deck, through the dash and over to where the glovebox is. Stick the connectors through the cut hole and reinstall the box. You will want to cut the part of the metra kit that houses the DIC away from the rest of it. That way it will fit nicely and look better. Just connect everything and your done!

No probem. The one thing i forgot to add is that the kit plugs into the stock harness. so as long as you didnt cut the connector off of the stock harness and get rid of it. You should have no problems. But if you did then it will be a little tougher. Still doable just tougher
