carbon fiber wing installation help

I bought a carbon fiber wing but don't wanna install it myself cuz my car+me+drilling etc = disaster like a tim allen episode of home improvement. So is there a shop that will do it? Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place...

just go to abstrakt or if you wanna diy do this

buy some measuring tape
buy ONE dowel or just use your finger and something perfectly straight
some chalk or a BRIGHT washable marker (basically something that'll show on your paint but wont harm it and can come off easily

okay so first measure your wing from one side to one side (left to right) in this example lets say 30cm (i know your wing is bigger but youll get what im saying)

next measure your wing from top to bottm (lets say 10 cm)

okay now from left to right put a dot on the 15cm point

from top to bottom mark the 5cm point and make a cross haird at the center point of your wing

now measure your trunk left to right and top to bottom and do the cross hair thing again lets say left to right is 40cm and top to bottom is 20 cm

okay so now the left to right discrepancy is 10 cm so basically on the trunks left side count 5cm going to the right and draw a vertcal line and from the trunks right side count 5 cm to the left and draw a vertical line

do the same for the top and bottom and itll be perfectly centered than mark off your drill point and go for it

for things like that why pay a mechanic 70 bucks right?
