Best thing to do is to lay the lot out on a bench or something and put all the parts in the correct places so that you have an idea where it is going to end up - it certainly helped me before I started as you are then breaking the problem down into smaller parts. Pretty sure that the switches are marked with the relevant connections (they are numbered if I remember correctly) but it can't have been that difficult if I have done it.

Been a while since I did mine but I would probably start with running the power from the battery through the bulk head and get that part in place and then add on from there - relay got bolted onto the side of the battery box\tray and earthed out on something obvious - internally think I earthed on the 11mm dome nut under the drivers seat. Don't connect to the battery till you are finished though for obvious reasons.

Door cards - measure twice at least before you cut and make sure that the switch is not too close to the window or it will catch on the door itself which is a complete PITA. Pretty sure I started with the drivers door as well - it made more sense at the time for some reason I can not remember.

Remember none of it is exceptionally complicated but expect it to take way longer than you think it should - best of luck.

Cheers for that. Its now all fitted and working good. Was pretty straight forward apart from feeding all the wires through the dash. Really impressed with the quality.
