Exclamation Anyone near Central Connecticut to help with seat install? $$

I'm in over my head a bit trying to install seats in my M. I have VAC floor mounts, vac side brackets, recaro sliders, vac factory seat belt adapter and some corbeau fx1 seats. I've taken out the front seat and just don't "get it" regarding install. I'm not a very handy person (bought the wrong car to not be handy ).

I'm willing to pay someone to install at this point, however don't want to have to reinstall the seats and drive somewhere to get it done.

Location is South Windsor, CT.

For those who are curious, I don't understand why the amounts aren't flush as the front part of the floor is higher. Add in the fact I'm having a difficult time knowing how to properly get the seat positioned on the side mount/slider, then needing to drill the side mount (or slider per vac) in one spot to mount to the slider, blah, blah, blah, I'm a hot mess. I don't have a lot of time to dedicate to figuring this all out due to family and job responsibility so hoping a local member can help a fellow M owner out!

Munich is in South Windsor. If you mean next to CCSU then I could ask my buddy Rick if he could help you out.

Munich motorsports moved to East Windsor, which is where I get all my work done, however was hoping to get this done at the house so I wouldn't have to transport 2 seats with me in a different vehicle when dropping it off.

Sorry I meant central CT as in location, not the school. I'm about 20 minutes north east of CCSU so if Rick wants to drive here that's fine.
