Need mechanic to install towing equipment
I picked up my new 2012 Smart fortwo Wed and I have the Ready Brute Elite towbar/braking system, toad protector, wiring harness, and the proper Demco baseplate. Now all I need is help getting everything installed.
I'm currently in Pottsboro, TX and need to be in Conroe, TX by Wed. The only place I could find near here wants almost $700 to install the baseplate alone. Demco says it's a 3.5 - 4 hour job. That price seems outrageous.
So for now the plan is to rent a U-haul trailer to get the car to Conroe where I'll have several months to get everything installed.
Does anyone know a good mechanic in Conroe? The baseplate came with detailed installation instructions with photos showing each step. It seems to me that any good mechanic could install this. I am almost tempted to try it myself.
A mechanic near the route I plan to take would work if they could get me done by Wed. (US-75 to I-45)
