I saw one today at my local junkyard, still attached to the car (very recent wreck, 5/20).
I thought of you straight away just after seeing it :D
How far from Chicago is it? Or grab it for yourself

I've already done it following your suggestion but I found the installation easier. I followed the instruction that are available at nissan tech info.com and I only had to wire two wires: one to the bcm (tapping wire number 38 if I remember correctly for key on power) and one body ground.
My mirror came from an Altima as weel, and it's identical to yours...with compass and homelink (that I use) but with only two wires. Works great!
The always on is for the homelink memory.
Yes I did it the hard way running a Bat + and key on + up there from the fuse block with a direct ground to the point under the passenger airbag.
The way I have mine wired does give me alot of headroom if I decide to put a dash cam or whatever up there. That auto dimmer doesn't pull anywhere near 10 amps, and I could safely bump those 2 circuts to 15 amps if need be. Plus I also have the dome light circut as well.

mine is key on power only, but the homelink memory doesn't get erased when I turn off the car. maybe it's a different model? it's gentex anyway, looks exactly like yours.

done OEM armrest and tweeters today :)
If the rest of that interior is clean, it is a nice upgrade. The SL seats are much much more comfortable, especially on longer trips.

in addition to labor they would need a little restoration too, but yes...they look comfortable :)

Test fitting a floor plate I bought from Raul over at CheckerdSports in Nevada. So far so good.

Torque Pro is running well on my temporary tablet setup. Next up, coilovers and some Cobra Suzuka seats (eventually).

I should probably create a build thread by now...

Did you have to thread the rod to get that shift knob on?

OEM subwoofer installed today!
It was a 5 hours job, and that considering that I already soldered some wires before starting the installation (I didn't have the body harness but only the sub connector and the head unit connector, and using premium wire I made my own harness.

1) I ran the wires under the driver's inner kickplates to the trunk, I taped the wires together to have a tidy harness
2) I ran two ground from the head unit to two screws behind the glovebox
3) I ran two ground from the sub's connector to two screws in the trunk
4) I ran battery wire from the sub's connector to the head unit 19 wire (battery)

Then I had to reset the head unit in order for it to see that the sub was now present.

The hardest part was to remove the trunk lower finisher because it's a pain in the ass: you need to unbolt the rear seat and lift it up while you pull the part...and it's not very easy to unclip either without breaking anything.
Put it back in is even harder because it's so big it gets stuck everywhere...so you need a lot of patience.

Anyway, it sounds great! Now my SL premium audio system is finally complete.
