Help needed with sony head unit install

Hey all,

I'm brand new to TW so bear with me. I recently purchased a Sony MEX-N5000BT head unit to install in my 2008 Tacoma. So far I've removed the factory head unit, detached the clock assembly, and routed the microphone. Where I'm clueless is the wiring. I purchased a wiring harness which seems to match the female ends within the truck. However, the instruction manual doesn't offer anything more than a wiring schematic, and as someone who has zero experience with this kind of thing I'm beyond lost. Does anyone know of a helpful video or photo tutorial that could help me get this install completed? Thanks.

Can you show a copy of your wiring schematic?

It's actually easier than it seems. As for the wire harness. Just match up the colors from the wire harness kit to the harness from Sony. Red to red, yellow to yellow, etc. There are several how to videos online. Just google search 'how to install car stereo'. Here is a decent one.
