The Dangers of Cut-Rate Aftermarket Installation

November 12, 2019

If you’re like us, your car is a big part of how you show the world who you are. Not only did you spend a lot on it, but there’s a good chance you’ve put  a lot of time and effort into  customizing it, too.

When it comes to the installation of aftermarket components, it might be tempting to try to do it yourself or hire a cut-rate shop to try to save a few bucks.

Don’t Do It

Improper installation of components like stereos or light systems can cause electrical problems. Some parts can just be disastrous to install on your own or through a cut-rate shop, like vinyl wraps, graphics and tint. When installed improperly, these treatments can wrinkle, bubble or peel, leading to an aesthetic nightmare. Other services, like bedliner installations, can be difficult to get right for many professionals, or even the owners themselves.
