need help with aftermarket HU install

Just a few questions before i get started..

1. before i go at it with a screwdriver, whats the best way to remove the stock dash and getting the hazard button out? heard the hazard button can be a bitch
2. if anyone has used a metra ASWC, or maybe any aswc, where are the factory swc wires? a color or the wires and maybe a pin # would be great!!
3. does tacotunes suck as bad as everyone makes it seem?

thanks!!

1. I use a butter knife. Slides easy and you can get it far enough in the stock dash to pry without bending the vanity plastic. Hazard lights, just pay attention to what you're actually removing. I spent ~30 minutes the first time and finally figured out I was trying to remove too much. Everytime I go at it now it takes <2 minutes to get the dash torn apart. It's incredibly easy.

2. Link

3. I have no experience with TacoTunes, but that is for good reason. I spent lots of time researching them here on the board and looking through every DIY thread I could find. Eventually, I had Marv fab some things for me and did the install myself. Was a lot easier than I anticipated.

Head unit removal:
leave your doors unlocked and windows open in a parking lot some night.
