    After the last amazing install service Andrew provided, I had to go back to him. Thanks to Andrew, I am now running NetRadar DSP. Thanks again Andrew! Highly recommended installer!

    Is this on the MB?

    I'm deciding whether or not I want to be stupid and buy another car. One thing I'm not looking forward to is another install. I figure Andrew is in NYC, right?

    Yeah on the MB, and yes Andrew is in NYC. You might want to wait until it's warmer if you want him to work on your car. I had to figure out a way to heat my garage lol

    I thought I did all my paperwork I need for work tomorrow. I was wrong. I think I saved it to the wrong location and then later proceeded to wipe that drive...

    Andrew is a great installer and person. His installs consider everything possible to make it clean, easy and effective. I've had him install two setups so far and if I had another car I'd have him install that one as well. He's flexible with scheduling as well which is great. Also, his testing is effective as well. It's overall been a great experience.

    Thank you for all the compliments!

    Also, just a FYI, I've teamed up with a shop in NYC (Manhattan) which does fine exotic, high end cars. They do custom fabrication and installs on all sorts of vehicles. I'll be working there some weekends learning how to do some cool stuff. I'll still be doing side installs for regular cars but if you want to come down there as well, please let me know. PM me for prices on your cars if you want custom stuff done to it.

    Here's a 2018 Mercedes Benz S560 convertible which an ALP system and Sti-R plus was installed. The control pads were installed along with the ALP light under the mirror. Check it out!

    I'll be learning how to do custom fabrication, etc. Mostly I'll be their salesman bring in their business because I really don't have the time to do installs anymore. If I can do it and not take up the entire day, I can do it. I did a Camaro last weekend which took close to 4-5 hours. Came out great and was done before noon. I don't want to do an install that goes from 7am to 6pm anymore. I can refer the shop then and I can help out partially if needed.

    Plus I've been getting a lot of requests for top end cars which I don't have the indoor space to work with.

    Andrew, think you can review my setup again? I don’t want to bring it back to the original shop. Happy to pay for recalibration ( verifying heads are straight and ensuring they stay there )

    Hey JTT,you got a DETC. Did you test it and it resulted in PT? Otherwise there's no real reason to recalibrate.

    I have tested it against the detc. Results vary. The car defends but depending on the distance you can get a PT

    Hmmm interesting! I guess the heads drifted or something. I remember it was pretty solid when we last tested. But then again we didn't test it after DD adjusted the TX mount.

    @Andrew21 I hope I can still get up to your area in a couple months to have my setup tested and adjusted as needed. We'll be doing a trip to visit my sister-in-law in Cleveland, then over to CT to visit my brother, then, hopefully, down to your neck of the woods for a couple days before heading back to Alabama.

    I had my ALP heads adjusted this past weekend by Andrew @Andrew21 and Paul @PY004. They were both great to work with and know exactly what they’re talking about. I had the system installed by someone else but the heads were not installed properly, there were lots of punch thru’s. Contacted Paul and Andrew and they adjusted and tested everything for me. Done in just over 1 hour. Work was clean and professional, and most importantly, no more punch thru’s. Highly recommend these guys. Great experience.
