Sorry about posting this in two forums, but DC is really in the mid-atlantic, not really clearly in the NE region or the SE region.

Anyway, I have an 172 and have the smart top device, but would like to know where I can get it professionally installed.

I looked at the DIY guide and.... no thanks.

I see that it can be done somewhere in Richmond but was hoping to find something closer.

Any advice? Much appreciated.

Gonna give it a shot

The SmartTop is the first thing I purchased after picking up my SLK as it was the number one recommended mod on this forum and offered functionality I want. I've been thinking about having it installed too, but this forum has inspired me so I think I'm gonna go for it.

I also picked up a rear view camera and am just waiting for the Fakra connector to arrive and think I'll attempt installing both the SmartTop and camera at the same time. Wish me luck.... I'll let you know how it goes.

Now if only it weren't so cold!

Well if it's a flawless execution, maybe I can make it worth your while to handle mine.

I deleted your other duplicate post because I am mean.
No really, the reason is that members hit the new thread/post button at the top and see ALL new threads/posts since they were on last so there is no need for duplicate posts in other forum sections

now on to your topic, try audio installers. give them the diy and let them at it.

New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Installed!

Finally after weeks of freezing weather and an insane travel schedule, I was able to install my SmartTOP today, Easter Sunday of all days.

I was prepared having read all the information on the forums, but once I was actually faced with all those torx screws it really dawned on me how well the SLK is put together if this is any indication. Of course I was also thinking in the back of my mind about how I'm really going to pay for this tomorrow with a sore back from reaching so much while dealing with all those darn screws!

Since I can hardly open the hood of my car in my building garage without the HOA police coming unglued, I went to Rock Creek Park and enjoyed the beautiful day and took my time, a couple of hours in all. The afternoon project was totally worth and has left me with a great sense of accomplishment.

I love the convenience the SmartTOP provides; it is totally worth it in my book.
