Looking for professional shop to install CF hood on Weekend

I have a Vorsteiner CF hood to be installed, and I contacted several shops but I am pretty occupied during their business hours on weekdays and they don't do weekend installation

I am in SoCal East LA area; it'd be wonderful if someone can recommend me a good shop that take customers on weekends. Thanks

Hey guys, don't think it's a 1 day install on the roof.

Talking about a hood, not a roof.

way too early for me. Been at work since 7am. hood is easy. Especially a m3 hood (super light ). you should be able to do it yourself.

Don't know if it is true but I've heard a lot of fitment issues need to be fixed by grinding and drilling? So I do not know if I have the right equipment to do it.

I have been searching about instruction but no luck.

I am down for doing it myself thou

Fitment issue is always a possibility. If it's a carbon hood, grinding on it will suck. If it's fiberglass, then it can be repaired easier.

There will be no instructions found.

If you still wanna do it, I am down to help. You can PM me and we can talk more if you want. If you want a shop to do it, that's definitely cool too.

They are not related; the only thing in common is that they are in the same city and both do top notch work. A&A does all the work on our project cars, and their attention to detail is incredible. Nothing short of perfection leaves their doors. We have heard they are a bit more affordable as well.
