I had the ALP installed on my car, by a local shop. I was not very confident about the placement of the front heads, and also very worried about the Dragon guns. So I sent some picture to Andrew, and asked if could test the install. When he saw the pictures, he immediately said that testing would be a waste of time. I asked him if he could correct the placement of the heads, and what his suggestion would be to jam the dragon. He advised me to put a TX sensor between the two front heads. He stopped by on a Sunday morning, sorted out the mess the local shop had done, moved the sensors to the correct position, and added the TX sensor. Installation was perfect, and he is a pleasure to be around!

Beginning of June I met Andrew and Paul, and they tested mine and a friends car. Extremely thorough job! Did 6 runs I believe, and tested each sensor separately. I believe Paul said I got a PT at 125 feet, using the Dragon!

I just wanted to thank Andrew and Paul, for all their help! Great Experience, and really nice guys! They most definitely know what they are doing!

Next up is the testing of the Escort Max Ci 360, thats on my other car. Lets see how it does against the Dragon......
Andrews the man, and I hear Paul is a stand up guy as well. Paul, sorry I bailed on you the other weekend. I hope to make it up to you one of these days.

@Andrew21 just installed my ALP setup (Front only-1 TX & 2 Standard RX Sensors) and hard wired my Uniden R3. I used to install automotive sound systems years ago on the side so I am OCD and have an eye of a hawk when it comes to electrical installation. He did an amazing and extremely neat job on my 2018 Lexus GS. Besides the immaculate install he also completed laser testing with Dragon Eye and a few other laser guns. I highly recommend him!

As of today, Aug 14, 2018, I'll be limiting my installs due to circumstances. If I have the time, I will be able to do the install. If not, I'll send you to one of two shops that I trust the install will be done properly. Thanks for understanding.

I want to give another big thank you to Andrew. He is the man!! Stands by his work and offer the best warranty on his labor. One time we had a bad ground location for the ALP and he drove in what was like 3 hours of traffic with a full bladder to my house and fixed it! When I do my installs, I like to shortcut everything even if it doesn't look nice. Not Andrew! He tucks all the cables and wires nicely and hidden away from view which makes for a clean install.

Thank you sir! Once a customer always a happy customer for me :) Even when things are out of warranty, I'll still replace whatever I've done on the car. This way you keep coming back :)

This past weekend @Andrew21 did an amazing job installing laser jammers to my car. Andrew is not only a nice guy but he knows a great amount when it comes to this skill. He broke through the firewall with no issues and had everything up and running in under an hour. Phenomenal work indeed !! :quagmire:

andrew transferred my 4 Rx heads from my accord to this acura. i then added an extra Rx to the center on the acura ive been running 5 Rx, however, the dragon has recently come into town...

www.rdforum.org: ALP quint install - 2017 Acura TLX

so recently this year we have confirmed the dragon in nyc so andrew suggested i get Tx protection front and rear so i went ahead and upgraded my system. I had to upgrade my computer from hw1 to hw2 and thankfully ALP has an update program so i didnt have to buy another computer.

anyway he popped in the gps, installed the Tx front and Tx rear with splitter and we tested JTG/JFG dragon yesterday at the testing site- NYCTG.

Just had my 2 front heads and a TX sensor installed by @Andrew21. He did an amazing job! He made sure it would not be 2 visible to the eye as well as perfume 100%. I also drive in NYC plus the car has warranty. Don't want the dealer questioning too much. His price is more than fair and the work is professional. I can't say anything but fantastic work, and highly recommend him. Will definitely be using Andrew for my next instal on the Vette. :D

Hey Andrew, nice install! I like the placment of the control unit as well

Just wondering, any reason why you didn’t cut the grill to have more concealed installment? Was it hard to cut? Or customer preference?

Also, any recommendations regarding how to have a clean cut for this grill? Thanks in advance for your support
Hey man. The car is a lease and we can't cut the grill. The grill is about $300 bucks and he's not willing to pay for another grill. Although he did buy another grill, I'm not guaranteeing that it will look good. I kept it out and its barely noticeable. Thanks for the inquiry!

another update for a consistently great guy, i had one of my heads go out and i am unable to get the cable through the grill but luckily andrew, within an hour of telling him, had me meet up with him and swapped my dead head out with my spare head. i tried to give him money but he refused. he interrupted the middle of this Saturday to do this as i have to drive a couple states to attend my high school reunion this weekend. thanks again @Andrew21

another update:
Ive been in the process of getting a new car so i needed my system removed asap and today andrew did so within an hour and had my car back to factory. the 90 degree sun couldn’t stop him! he removed front and rear Tx, 4 Rx, the computer, 2 BT’s (dont ask lol), dashboard light indicator, and hifi pad. all bagged up nicely.

this is the 2nd time he removed this system from my cars (last time my accord, this time my acura). but this time i also had Tx heads so there was more to deal with (heads and wires).

the install master back at it again! thanks again @Andrew21!

No surprises here. What’s he going to install it in next?
