PM replied to, sorry been busy all weekend. Hope it clarifies.

No worries, thanks for taking the time  :y

Got a load of bits on order, but need to go to Maplins for some audio cable for use on the CDC loom.

Basically going to follow the Russian guide  :)
The White / Red leads on the RCA cable you mentioned should be fine to use.  ;)

Saves a trip then, always know their prices are way to high.

I could recycle the yellow one as an earth then.

So my plan is:

1) Separate the CDC/Radio, to get access to loom.
2) Stanley knife to split out 2,4 & 8.
3) Cut them in the middle of the loom (?)
4) Attach L/R audio feeds to the 2 & 4 so that RCA leads directly to main H/U.

*at this point can I just leave 2,4 coming off the plug just taped off? Since I don't need them, nor do I want CDC.

5) Take cable from 2 & 4 onto an earth on 8.

* for this, can the earth be on my part of the L/R? (new extended loom) or as part of the same join?
e.g. what I solder onto 2 from loom, I can solder on an L feed, along with earth?

    Solder shielding of the two cables onto wire position eight.

Thanks  :y :y :y :y :y

/stupid question mode

So the shielding, can I just twist that to make a good point to solder? Or can I wrap the wire around the shield and solder on  :-\

Also, another silly question, the point at which 1,4 attach to 8 can be a single point? Does it have to remain separate?

Yes

Twist the shielding together from both leads, tin it, tin the wire from line 8 and solder them together. This needs to be thin in order for the CDC and HU to sit back together properly.

I just popped to the garage and cut off one of the RCA plugs and split it, just to triple confirm the frayed section is the shield, I'll twist this together and tin it as you say. The actual feed in that core, attach either 1 or 4.

Yep, all correct.

Cable might be a bit thick though.

Yes, do wonder if it's little thick  :-\

Hoping that could squash in like a sandwich and come out straight at the back, by the data plug, and feed that out of the cage and down to the kick panel.

Guess could just use the core, but then no shielding.  :(

No, the shielding is the Earth (Neg, Common, Ground, Chassie, Signal return, what ever you want to call it).

Thanks Chaps, hopefully find a way to squeeze these cables out.  :)

Drill a hole and use a gromit.

Standard rca cable fits perfectly between the two halves. Routing it to a kick panel requires some imagination.

Assuming you define kick panel the same as I do - ie The cardboard panel below the glovebox held on with three white clips and three black plastic twisties then the routing is very simple, there is a way through lower left of the HU recess.
