Exclamation Help installing JDM RA Roof Vent (free pizza and beer in return)

Hey, I'm having one heck of a time trying to find a shop to install this JDM RA Roof Vent for me. My last hope was JDM Importers, and its looking like they wont do it.

SOOOOoo. I get to do it myself.

I was wondering if someone (or a few people) wanted to help me install this thing. Its basically dropping the headliner, and cutting a hole in my roof. Most people do it with a jigsaw. I know how to do it, kinda. The problem is, I don't have the tools or a garage to do this in. So I was hoping to find someone in Phoenix or Tuscon to spend a day with me installing this.

I will refund you guys with pizza and refreshments (some beer?). And being that I'm a photographer, maybe some photos of your car.

Thank you for your help guys. I have had this thing for about 6 months and I wanna install it!!!

I have watched a friend do this twice. It is scary cutting into the roof, but once you get going it is fairly simple...

I suggest waiting to hand out the beer until after the hole is cut in the roof...

I've got a garage with plenty of room, I love beer and pizza, but I don't have the all the tools you need and I live in Tucson. South of Tucson actually. It would be quite a drive from Flagstaff. Plus, I like expensive beer, I drink a lot of it, and I expect everything on my pizza.

Now that I think about it, you might want to make me a last resort.

I'd help but don't have the time right now... I will suggest a roto-zip type tool with a carbide bit instead of a jig saw. Should be a lot cleaner cut.

Harbor Freight has a nice one for $20 on sale. Just be sure to spend at least $10 on a good bit!
