Wiring Radio to Acc Switch on Dash

I want to get my radio off of the key switch and onto the Accessory switch on the dash to the left of the wheel on my 03 X Series (205v variant). Sound like a pretty easy thing to do. All except for getting a wire from the switch to the radio.

Is there already an Acc. circuit at teh observers seat by chance? Or can i intercept the current radio power line from the key switch? What is the color of the key switch radio wire?

If the radio is already on the IGN key switch, your wire to the radio is already under the helm.

I realize you have probably completed your mod already, but ask why the switch... I recently was considering the same thing and was steered to a power relay to handle the radio power off problem I had at engine startup. Not sure if that is what you want for an end result, just thought I would make you aware of the relay if you have not seen it. Hope you got it sorted one way or the other.
