Holly Hill, Fla. – Metra Electronics, the Installer’s Choice as the leading manufacturer of car stereo dash kits for 65 years, also has led the industry in education for the past 18 years through its Installer Institute.

Now for the first time, Metra’s has produced a 14-set video Installer Institute Training Series for do-it-yourself car stereo installers.

“The video series is much more in-depth than other training videos or hot rod TV shows,” says Jason Anderson, director of the Installer Institute and narrator for the video series. “It’s great for do-it-yourselfers and those who work in the industry, but it’s not a substitute for our certified 10-week course.”

The videos cover general and advanced installation of head units, amps and speakers; navigation, security and remote-start systems; enclosure design and construction; router techniques; fiberglass and plexi-glass techniques; welding; motorization; door panel and dash modifications; painting interior panels; and trunk customization.

“We cover the latest and greatest techniques and tools,” says Anderson, a master-certified installer, former shop manager and Installer Institute graduate. “For example, we show what welding can do for safety and strength, cost-saving ways to custom paint interior panels, and the latest router techniques.”

The training series utilizes the resources of the Installer Institute that includes Anderson and two other instructors who are master-certified installers through the MECP – three of only 100 master-certified installers nationwide.

The entire Installer Institute Training Series of 14 DVDs is just $595, or $49 for individual DVDs.
