i have an old car stereo with a big eq on it, and i was wondering if i could somehow turn it into a pedal, so, how could i do it?

you could, although some ffrequencies might be useless to you. Unless it's just a simple lo-mid-hi eq, it would be made specifically for an entire band (in that there are frequencies in treble and bass range) if you have a graphic eq (which I've never seen in a car) then I'm sure there's a way to bypass the ranges you wont use.

find a schem, rip it out, find where the input and the output part of the board is, hook it up, hoot up a ground, a switch, stick on jacks, a battery, and there ya go.

I could explain it better, but im too lazy. ask The honorable Pink Queen.

Change out the capacitors to modify the frequency response. Don't ask me on what values to do, it's not very simple. You have to know something yourself.
Make sure the input impedance is suitable for guitar.
Make sure any preamps/buffers/whatever provide suitable gain. My guess is that the EQ is setup for line level, which the guitar isn't yet.
After passing through the EQ, you'll need to attenuate the signal back to a suitable level. Again check the impedance.

Have fun.

it sounds like it would be too much work to put into it
