thanks but that doesnt really seem to help me...all i really need is knowin where to wire up the speakers at the headunit....aka what wire on the harness do i have to tap into

the easiest method would be to tap directly into the head unit harness and run new wires to the rear.

here's the color code coming out from your apline:
Right Front (+) Gray
Right Front (-) Gray/Black (or white)
Left Front (+) White
Left Front (-) White/Black (or white)
Right Rear (+) Violet
Right Rear (-) Violet/Black (or white)
Left Rear (+) Green
Left Rear (-) Green/Black (or white)

the second color on the neg will be a stripe
