lol Im not worried I've been doing this for a few years now never had a problem with this or the dealer saying anything. They always ask me how it's done, lol. The invisicord/mirrortap also has a built-in fuse. But you can go to the fuse box if you want, just a lot more work and expense.
I've decided I'm going to do it this way too. So the long wire to fuse box cable thing from Blend Mount really is something you are supposed to run the wire down to another wire that will provide the power and then has this blue vamp clip which you pierce the power wire with and then insert the clip that is now vamping the other wire into the Hardtap blue plug area. So not going to do that. So the black goes to the black on the plug and the red goes to the brown one? Did you use wider/longer insert to push in or tiny ones? Did you zip tie the wire to either the plug or another wire so there was no chance of them getting pulled out?

Yea that's too much work lol
My mirrortap is pretty old, it only came with a single extra pair of thin pins. I used that one. Im waiting for my new Blendmount to tie wrap it. But the pins are in pretty tight, I rugged on it and it didn't come out.

I watched a video today on the FB TLX Gen 2 forum where the guy installed a dash cam by his rearview. Without hardwire tap! He ran the wire through the headliner down the passenger side by the door under the glove compartment and then.... to the portable charger socket to the left. Wait what port?! I ordered the long Escort wire and gonna do it this way!

Still seems like a lot of work. But its OK. You can do it that way. Im fine with the much easier and cleaner looking way.

Thanks again for the help!!
