    your best bet would probably be to check with your local car audio shops-- you should be able to find at least one in your area that wouldn't mind taking the install on.

    I check a few audio places, and so far all of them aren't up for it. They don't have any experience. I will keep looking around.

    Hereabouts [LA], "Al & Eds Auto Sound" is considered pretty good as far as I know [my old Bug mechanic suggested them to me]. Dunno if they're down in Orange

    Personally I thought they were a bit overpriced last time I got a quote for some work [actually, a lot overpriced], but there's no harm in going to ask.

    Personally, I wouldn't want to have a shop install a carputer for me. Carputers are constantly evolving and having someone do the work for you would mean you'd have to keep going back to them if you want to change your system; great for the installer, not so much for you. I'm only assuming this since you don't/can't do the inital install yourself. Carputers are not for the faint of heart and require much more than something like installing an aftermarket CD deck to your ride.

    I don't want to discourage you, rather I would hope that you will do as much research as you can on these forums, then research some more. Then when you feel confident enough, tackle the installation yourself. You'll feel much more satisfied when you show off your ride and you'll have better idea of what to do when it comes to troubleshooting. Besides, that's what the community here is for, we're here to help.

    Black_mamba,

    Thanks for your comments. I never really thought about that, makes a lot of sense.
    The only taking on something this looks very overwhelming. I have to take a minute and see if what route iam going with.

    thank you
