Newb hardcore. Working out of southwestern (You can't even comprehend the huge demand for car electronics work around here. *end sarcasm*) Just really got into this seriously in Nov of 04. Been reading like crazy waiting for the weather to go away so I can start learning. I'm currently learning fiberglass fabrication on my own basically with the help of some great sites. Desperately trying to get into a shop to start learning how to apply all this theory and such. Going to attend IIT this summer I am sure if things don't get going. Learning a lot fast, wanna learn more, and I'm sure I will. Been a long time since I felt that. So basically, I'm a back alley guy with no physical experience(worth mentioning) that doesn't even have a garage to work out of, yet. Hoping to move up, and being around here is helping, considerably.

My name is Mike, 30yrs old. I am the head of a four man install team employed by the State of Utah, Information Technology Services. We install and maintain all public safety equipment for all state agencies in Utah. That includes everything from over 500 highway patrol vehicles to the Governors vehicles, Armored personnel carrier for the state swat team, prison perimeter vehicles, undercover and surveilence vehicles, bait cars with GPS, mobile command centers (40ft RV usually with 3 or 4 dispatch consoles, satellite phones, mobile data, communication links, onboard repeaters, telescopic video camera, generator, PBX, GPS, automated antennas, etc.) and anything else related that you can think of. The area of +12V a lot of people forget about  =)

I started coming to this board when I was trying to locate a wiring diagram for a Toyota Camry that was being used as a bait car. Great people here and a lot of knowledge....if any of you come through the Salt Lake City area and want the nickel tour of our shop, let me know... Mike

I have been in car audio as a career since I got out of high school.  Before that it was just a hobby, after graduation I attend Installer Institute in Daytona Beach(class of summer 98') when Chris Cooper was the instructor.  Ever since then I have worked three places, AudioPlus(Ames,Iowa), SoundWorld(MC, Iowa) and now I am the Mobile Sup at Best Buy(MC, Iowa).  SO I have been doing this thing for a while and to be honest the Best Buy thing is a nice change from just installing.  I have alot of other things to take care of besides just installing so its a good change.  But I really am now missing the fabrication and custom work I was doing.......I have been playing around with fixing decks and amps a little, and would like to take it a little farther, again as a hobby.  So yeah yada yada yada..........later
another remote start season survived...but plenty of custom work ahead...MECP? of course ;)

Hey guys, another bloody aussie here too annoy you all! What can I say?hmmm...start from the start I guess huh?

My father was a Aircraft Technician for 35 years, it was only natural that I do something of the ilk, aircraft wasn't my thing, I hate aircraft..even though I have the move of my life coming up 22hours in a plane just ain't my thing, but I love my fiance and my kid so when she had to move back to the states it was only natural that I do the same thing once my contract runs out.

I have been installing for about 6 years now, the company work for isn't just your bread and butter installations we do it all, theres a saying that we keep in the shop "If it was designed to go in a car, we put it there, if it wasn't designed to go into a car, we still put it there!".....3phase 415 volts in your car anyone?

We use a lot of lateral thinking in our bay, something just aren't meant to work but we have to make them work. Some of the more exciting jobs is in installing for the undercover police cars, we do some pretty incredible things with them, you climb into the after we have finished and all you can see is a handsfree kit,  unfortunatly due to my Confidentiality Agreement, I can't tell you too much more oter then WOW!!!!!! it takes about 2 days to kit one of these cars out and thats 2 installers working non-stop.

I got side tracked didn't I? guess it doesn't matter I'm looking forward to my move to Wisconsin, Tessa has said that there isn't much work for me in Eau Claire or the twincities so I may have to look at moving away from car audio and doing something else, I just don't know what? does anybody the name os some shops I can look at?

I love using this forum, I use it more for a place to whinge about problems more so then questons pertaining to cars, but it's nice to see that I'm not alone with some of my problems...see post in General Discussion "The Apprentice"

Later y'all, I just got word that a truck has stopped reporting via Navman and now the truck wont's 1500 km's away....nice little drive huh? see you in a few days!
