Update: yep, the sony mch-gx355 is dead. Plays but skips all over the cd tracks and there's no amp for the line-in port.....
Now accepting donations for a new bench amp that is rated for atleast 4ohm and not stuck at 8ohm 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

It seems not alot of people with mustangs put sounds in their cars, most people are more performance oriented.

Setting up wiring for starter and car's underhood fuse block. Gonna run 2ga (so more waiting simce i don't have any) for the starter since i can't find definitively whether the 4.0 (245cu in) v6 uses 2ga or 4ga starter wire.
