Electrical Mentor in San Francisco bay area

Hi, I do not feel confident with my electrical capabilities, I have a 1954/55 that was gutted before I got it and I have been running wires but do not feel good about what I am doing. Is there someone in the SF bay area that would be willing to walk me through this? Of course I would pay for your time.

Will the Monterey or San Mateo area help? In the mean time....it is easier than you think. Ask right here and you will get the answer...try it out. Welcome!

We're happy to help w/ advice and suggestions. Our (esp. older) Airstreams are not particularly complex from an electrical standpoint.
Much of what needs to be done, of course, is making sure the wiring is
protected from physical damage - there's no such thing as an electrical failure - they're all mechanical: broken wires, shorts, etc :.

Yes the San Mateo area is close. Do you know someone there that I could hire?
