    Hiding wiring with no carpet, vinyl only

    Hi all, I am a newbie when it comes to car audio. I recently received a complete audio system for Christmas (Pyle 1600 watt 2 Channel Mosfet amp, Dual head unit, DB Link 4 guage wiring kit, wiring harness and dash kit for my truck (1990 Ford F-150 Custom extended cab)). I'm pretty sure i can handle changing the head units, and which wires go to where but what im having problems with is figuring out how to hide all the wiring so it looks clean. Everything that ive read says to hide under the carpet but my truck doesnt have carpet, just vinyl. What should I do? Has anyone done an install on a 90s model ford extended cab pickup? Any help will be appreciated since the person who said they would help me do it backed out

    You could try plastic trim panels on the sides if you have any.



    Headunit - Pioneer DEH-P8300UB
    Subs - None
    Sub Amp - 2x Crescendo 3kwp
    Front Stage - Polk Audio db651 Coaxial
    Front Amp - None

    You could run the wires under the truck and come back up in the truck behind the seats

    Some people do it when they have multiples runs of 0 going back and wont fit under carpet and stuff
