Then had to wait quite a while for the hair dryer to shrink the shrink wrap tube around the wires. All buttoned up now and looks great. Thank you so much for taking the time to write up these instructions and for all of the people that weighed in on how easy it is.

Mine is paired with a blendmount too. A bit crazy how much they charge, but it’s a quality product.
I gave up on the hair dryer and applied flame to the heat shrink briefly. It shrank _right_ up! Haha

My wife coming home to find me sitting in the car with her hair dryer was the most difficult part of the whole procedure... that was a fun one to explain.

I'm late to the party but THANK YOU!! My '14 C2S came with the wire already installed but my new (to me) Turbo S comes off the truck today so since I'll be sleeping in the garage, I can get this done!

You're not considering exceeding the posted speed limits in your new 911 Turbo S, are you?
