You shouldn't need to as the plastic cover of the scotch lock is the insulation.
Having said that it will do no harm to do so

Not for a while Rasa,
I have a lot of repairs in at work so not going to get a chance till next week to do that.
The answer is to place the aerial as high up as you can at the front or rear windows and to run the cables behind the cabin trim

You have the iso connector in your hand.
I said the colours are usually brown and black
Yours are grey and orange coloured by the looks of your second photo.
Just chase the red, yellow and black wires coming from your head unit into the block in your hand and you will see which wire lines up with the car look wires

The other unconnected wires you have seen are part of the wiring looms for extras that your car could have been fitted with, for instance, cruise control, heated seats, rear electric blind etc!
None of these are of concern for wiring your head unit and freeview box.

just want to get everything clear as i do not want anything to go wrong, what are the wires that do not connect to anything, you can see them in the 1st photo on the left with foam and a couple of white blocks
