DIY Alarm and remote starter !!! Autopage

I've successfully installed an alarm & remote starter on my TX pro 2011 4X4, the job took me up to 25hrs from the time gathering materials, reading instructions, installation probbably within 8hrs. This would include Autopage 1100, ADSTB transponder bypass module, Install Essentials 507M Tilt Sensor, Directed Electronics 520T Back-Up Battery System.
All connections are soldered & heat shrink when possible, some of the door trigger wires are very difficult to get to if you have fat fingers !, you would need 40 watts soldering gun from Radio shack, 60/40 solder, heat shrink kit from home depot, premium electrical tapes (USA made not the Chinese ones) know how electrical works is a MUST!!!. It has been working great in hot weather, I started my truck 10 minutes before get into the when its close to 100 degree outside, 2 way remote is the best, it would tell you when the truck is successfully started, while my truck is running I insert the key into ignition turn it to on and drive away, if I want to make a quick stop without turning off engine all I have to do is remote start it while engine is running and remove the key get out of the truck turn on alarm lock all doors & walk away while the truck is running. Additional security feature will be add to the truck later on when I have more time. If you look at my picture its not a bird nest or messy wires running everywhere, I did my best to keep wire look like factory wires,
used proper diodes for all triggers wires connected to a common trigger input, hood safety & brake safety installed, siren and horn connected.
I'm very happy , I think I did better the those rookies hired by Bestbuy!
anyway I just put this up if anyone want to do this to their truck.. I can provide more information if needed. If you have never deal with electrical wires on a car or don't know how electrical works I wouldn't recommend to do this yourself.
