Radio fitting

Am based in derbyshire and am trying to find someone to fit my fixed radio and antenna . I don't mind travelling a bit if needed I know it's a long shot but does anyone out there know of any one .
I am down in lymington in two weeks so could have it done there but it means a day less on the water .

I will happily give you a price, you could drop it in on your way through to Lymington. It should only take us a few hours. If you email me a photo of the area you would like it fitting I could let you know the fitting cost. Service@rib-shop.com

Where in derbyshire are you ?

Its not a technically hard job, basic DIY. Jigsaw, drill, electrical connectors and methodical patients are pretty much all you need.

Plan where to fit it.
Cut the hole.
Wire it up.
Plan where to fit the aerial.
Attach it.
Wire it up.

Ive done mine and could give you a hand with yours if you want.

I have bought the radio and antenna. From advice it would seem that the radio should be on the console between my legs if you will pardon the expression . The antenna is to be mounted on the A frame . I have ordered the cable and both end connectors .
If you could give me a price that would be great . It's a 4.8m ribcraft .

I am near Belper which is near Matlock. Your offer is very kind and I would happily cross your palm for your trouble . I am bloody useless when it comes to that kind of thing I can turn my hand to something's but not that . I would happily help but that's what it would be . I would prefer to get it done before we head down to lymington which would give me more time on the water but time is against us . We are going down on the 30th of this month
