So when TW put out the offer of consulting on and/or installing various electronical gizmodos on and in various automobilia et al, the opportunist in me said YES! .....I don't have to do it.

You see I'm one of those idiots who will buy a high end luxury car, modify it, and then abuse it for hundreds of thousands of miles. Crazy maybe but I like comfort. 50,000 miles/yr for 5-10 years in a KIA doesn't sound fun. But I digress.

That said I'm also picky. I do top level work and expect to receive the same in return for my hard earned cash. I also tend to watch--some of it is paranoia, most is cuz I like to watch. That usually pisses off all but the best of technicians. Consider it to be done on purpose, accidentally. But TW knows his shit when it comes to angry pixies that make video audio and fancy lights work.

TW helped pick out a great dash cam system with wifi, cloud blah blah, super night vision (NV) for "night ops", phone control, parking guard, etc. It's a cool one--all the bells and whistles outside of bottle service and "companionship..."

He was also crazy enough to agree to install aforementioned gizmodos into a new (US built) German car full of every other electronic gizmodo known to man and NO ACCURATE POWER DISTRIBUTION DATA. That's correct. Even the dealer can't tell you what fuse does what as it's only in the individual sections of the troubleshooting tree in the manual that only they have access to on the OEM "cloud"........ Nice. Thanks Hitler. Anyways.

He got it done, with top quality connectors, tools, high speed internet service, etc. The install looks factory. Even my tint guy commented how well the wiring was ran. Impressive since most of the work was done in the late afternoon/evening over the course of two days and he had to pull about half the interior out to finish it.

Many hours. Many more than I think even he initially thought. And a very fair price all considered. Plus the taco place he knows about is legit.

I'll use him again and recommend his work. :flag:

Thanks TW!

I need a grill mounted Light bar installed on my 2016 Z71 Colorado, that would be child's play for him in comparison.
