I wish I could find schooling or a "trainer" to hone my skills in the car installation field... I would really like to do that as a job for now until I get out of school...

It's possible to do just not common.  Over 15 years I only had three women work for me and one of them was my girlfriend, she used to take great fun embarassing guys on the street when she took my car out and they would try to bump their system with a girl in the car with them and hers was louder.  Unfortunately some of the not so feminine comments have a little merit as one of the others was a lesbian, great worker but she was more 'one of the boys', her partner was the feminie type.  Last one was one of the best sales people I ever had.  Young guys thought she was cute and if they didn't know what she was talking about would just agree so as not to seem stupid about a guy thing and the female cusotmer loved her as they didn't feel like they were being pressured by a guy.  Only ever had two customers be rude because they were girls and both were pretty quick to get out after I got at them, I don't like rude people and sure as hell won't have my employees put up with them.

OK I'll stop rambling now.:)

Six thousand dollars.. what do you have in ur trunk?

Well.......where to start, lol, Kenwood Excelon HU, Zapco SX-SL preamp/processor, Zapco 750 on four Cerwin Vega 12s, Zapco 200 on left side/Zapco 200 on right side.Both running mixed/mono to a set of MB Quart Q-series components in fornt and a set of Q-series midbass in rear........

I think that covers pretty much the most of it, lol, Just the symbalink cables in my truck are close to 300 dollars worth!!

*chuckles*  i have an ITTY BITTY sound system in my 69.  no room up in the front for any speakers what so ever, maybe in teh door panels, with much modifcation.

in the back seat, which is actually just a luggage shelf, i put a 400 watt lightning audio doo-icker amp, with a pair of 8s, along with a pair of stock 6x9s from a mazda something of the other, running off my CD player...

hell, it took about freakin 3 hours to take out the old Mono channel AM radio, cut the hole bigger, custom make a bay, and install my POS Awia cd player in it... and i'm bloody estatic.  haha.

*enjoys being able to have a reasonable conversation without shouting with lady passengers*

i mean... leave shouting for fights, not for cruisin down the strip.

and yes... that POS you saw in my other post DOES have a sound system in it now... i'm waiting for the engine to come back from teh machinists, and i'm slowly doing the bump and grind... systems however, are a love of mine, and so i can honestly say that my project car may not run, but the damn sound system works... if you rig a batter in the engine compartment...

Hey dbdraggirl where do you live?  I've got an trainee/intermediate opening here in So.Cal, I think it would be awsome to have a woman installer in the bay.
