I would love to help you install it; that way, if we fuck up it's not my car. JK

And when I finally install mine, I'll know what to do.

Yubimmer: If you hear any of us say "trust me, I know what I'm doing" ... run, don't walk to the nearest fire extinguisher

But seriously, what could go wrong?

If you have the instructions, send me a copy ahead of time. I have a friend who was an electrical engineer for Amtrak. He worked solely with the acela trains... If I twist his arm enough, I might be able to get him to come and give you a hand...

Well, I dont have the package yet... There is the possibility I might get it tomorrow...

Here is my plan... If I get the kits tomorrow, Im actually going to do the install myself... As Donny can tell you, the first time around takes a whiiiiile.... After the first, its pretty easy... With a new kit, I would like to take my good old time figuring out what the heck is going on...


I am very skeptical about the kits arriving tomorrow, so there is a good chance I will have to wait until next weekend for the install anyway... Im not trying to jump the gun, but believe me, it would be better if I worked out a few of the kinks in the installation first...

I do have DIY instructions, but not as detailed as the PMB, so let me wrestle with my kit first...

AJ, what's gonna stop you from bailing on us (once you have your LUX all running and stuff) We'd still need your expertise

I want to see them installed on other cars... If I get them early (and this is a huge IF), the install would go faster... Chances are, I will get them early this next week, and will wait on the install...
