Need help in the Charlotte area

I've got a 2009 and want to do the carb mod and install the doo. I just don't feel confident doing it by myself. Anyone around here can show me the way?

When I did my doo, I had help. Lots of it. That said, I think I COULD have pulled it off by myself. And I am wrenching impaired. A video would be dope. You could even try to convince one of the gurus to skype with you?

Keeping track of all the shit is the hardest part. MarkB4 taught me a cool trick years ago. Get one of them egg containers that holds a shitload of eggs. Number the cups. Every bolt you put off, put in the egg container. Then when it's time to close, you just put em all back in the reverse order. No losing bolts.

Good luck, brother. I'd offer to skype you through it, but a guru I am NOT.
