PM SBC1320, he's in the area. Do you have the kit already? It's really not that bad to do it yourself, just get the right tools. Or, you might try some of the techs at a good stereo installation company. Watch them work and if you like what you see and hear, ask about them doing a side job.

Strokes suck. If I were near Houston, although one of my son's lives in League City, I'd do the job for you. He was just home, so we won't be going there for a visit for a few months.

American Autowire mad the kit I installed and it was easy to follow because all of the wires are labeled every 6" or so the whole length of each wire. I don't know if Painless does the same, but have heard good things about their kits. Tool wise, a real good set of crimpers are a must. AAW rents them and sells them and the I think the price was set by Snap-on :eek:

You will want a real good set of wire strippers, soldering iron, solder and a selection of shrink tubing. The next, and hardest tool to find, is patience.

Keep us posted on your progress, and some pictures would really help us help you.
