AUX Jack in 91-93 Caprice Radio: Help Wanted

I have been searching the internet at least a couple months for how to splice in a female AUX jack in a 91-93 Caprice radio. I'm tring to modify the radio in my 93' Classic.

There are a lot of threads on how to modify the newer 94-96 radios and similar radios (Suburbans and Silverados).

91CapClassic has a build thread on his 91' Caprice which he did modify his radio to accept aux but never elaborated on it; and never got back to my messages.

There is also services that will do the modification for me, $70 later!

I have the means to do the modification myself and an extra radio to experiment with, I just don't know where the pre-amp is and exactly what parts of the radio to cut into.

I would greatly appreciate any and all help. If I manage to get the info and successfully do the mod, I will do a full writeup on this forum.

Thank you-

A system like that would work. I looked at something similar but that pretty high end in terms of car audio.

I'm just looking to spline in a female 3.5mm aux jack into the face of the radio and run it through the preamp. (Turing on the jack via a device being plunged in will override the audio from the radio and use the jacks signal) I just don't know exactly where the preamp is and what wires to splice in.

I want it to be like this (pic from 91capclassic's thread):
