What is Mobile Install Guide All About?

Mobile Install Guide is an outlet for me, Scott, to share the knowledge I’ve gained in almost a decade as a professional car electronics installer.  My vision for this site is for it to become a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers and professional installers alike.

For the Do-It-Yourselfer

Are you ready to tackle your next installation?

Maybe you’re just starting out and you know you have the capability but you just don’t know where to start.  Maybe you’ve been installing your own equipment for years and are just looking to stay current on all the new products and install practices.  Mobile Install Guide has buying guides and reviews to help you pick the right products, install guides to help you get it installed, and tips for best practices and tools to use.

For the Professional Installer

Whether you’re working on getting your MECP certification or you are looking for install tips, best practices, and handy tools to use, Mobile Install Guide has the resources you need.  I’ve coached and trained many installers in my time in the shop and I’d like to continue doing that through the content I create for this website.

So Who is this Scott Guy?

I am a professional car electronics installer turned electrical engineer.

I’ve always been a tinkerer.  It wasn’t long after I got my first car that I started taking things apart to see how they worked and figuring out how to put them back together.  I rebuilt a few engines and pretty much did whatever I could to make my car as fast as possible with the little money I earned from my first job at a fast food joint.

When I started working as a car electronics installer back in 2005, I quickly discovered my passion for car audio.  It truly was a dream job for the 20 year old me and I couldn’t wait to learn everything I could about the craft.  I eventually earned my Basic and Advanced Mobile Electronics Certified Professional (MECP) certificates and became the lead installer.

The more I learned about the equipment I was installing every day, the more fascinated I became with how everything worked.  This fascination eventually lead me back to school and in 2014 I graduated with a degree in electrical engineering.

Although I’m no longer working as an installer, my passion for the industry has not faded and I love to teach others what I know.  If you’d like to get in contact with me, fill out the subscription form below and we can chat about topics that you would like to read about on this site.
