Default '02 Grand Am install questions

Has anyone installed a sportster 4 with the Bracketron bracket (or ProFit) metal bracket that go to the right of the stock radio? Thats what I plan on doing, and was wondering if anyone else has had luck with these.

My system is the Monsoon cd with cassette and I don't think it has an AUX input, so the FM Modulator is probably the only route. Are there extra adapters required to hook up a wired modulator to the monsoon receiver?

I'm also not sure where to mount the antenna. Does anyone have tips on where to do this in a 99-05 GA? I'm thinking either inside between the speakers in the back window, or outside on the top of the trunk. But, my car is white and it would stand out big time.

Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Hey I have a 2001 Grand AM GT. I have an aftermarket HU though. I hardwired one car dock for an S50 in my 99 M3, but with the other car dock it's just hooked up via FM modulator in the Grand Am. I'm not sure what your mount looks like, but I was able to put the mount in the cup holder and I just used double sided tape for it to stick better. Then I just ran the cig adaptor right since it's about an inch away from the car dock.

As for the antenna, I ran the wire underneath the center console, underneath the dash, and came out to the door seal on the passenger side. I ran it underneath that, and came up to the roof, where I ran the wire underneath the windshield gasket, and stuck the antenna in the middle front of the roof right next to the windshield.
