    Icon8 Going to try to make a hobby my job...

    So I found out a local car place is hiring.

    They need people with "experience installing or just who know their way around under a hood."

    So tomorrow I am going in to check it out, they sell Clarion and MTX mainly, brands I havn't messed with too much. Any of you guys got tips or pointers? I am going to give it a good shot.

    Well, true. But if I had been getting paid for my hobby, I would be a rich, rich man.

    Re: Going to try to make a hobby my job...

    I still love installing...but only on my own car.

    Before I was an installer I loved working on anyone's car...now I hate working on other peoples' cars...it *****.

    I still enjoy it, but nowhere near the amount that I used to prior to installing...sometimes I dread going to work, simply because I don't want to work on cars.

    Some days I still look foward to going to work and installing though...

    The day you learn to spell "lose" properly is the day people start to take your posts seriously

    Copy That.. I worked as an installer for a few years it was just a pain in the a55 after that.. never finished my systems cuz I had to work.. & didnt feel like working when I got home..

    Go for it anyway.. its a good & fast way to get better..
