Hello, noon question for ya...
I'm installing a Kenwood headunit in my car. I bought the 70-8590 adapter. Which wire from the headunit wires do I connect the blue wire from the adapter to? There's a antenna control wire and a "P. Control" wire left from the headunit wires. I'm guessing the p control goes with the amp p control and the antenna control wire is to the blue wire from the adapter. Did I just answer my own question?

where should I connect the ground wire from the headunit wires? Should I just ground it to the car? Is yes, then where. The back of the compartment is all plastic.
