Shop recommendation near San Jose CA

Our reverse camera died and looks like the whole cieleing needs to comeout to install a new one.
I personally suck at upholstry work and always manage to break a clip or two.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good shop in Bay area for such work.

I think the top shelve will need to be removed too for access

Your van looks very nice. Similar to you - I am not great with removing panels like that. Probably most people will break a few pins, it is a matter of how many and having the right replacement parts to make it all work.

Are you thinking to go to a upholstery shop - have them remove some interior panels - and then do the camera work yourself or similar?

There used to be a shop near 101 and Berryessa road ( I lived in that area a long time ago) but no idea if it is still there.

Another place they tend to be is along 880 in the east bay (due to lower commercial rent pricing )

Those shops always are the ultimate mind blowing experience. I still remember going into that one. Everyone looks a little rough around the edges and strong as heck. Then they sit down at an industrial sewing machine and create amazing art work in very tough to work materials.

Are you certain that the entire wiring needs to be replaced and not just the camera?

I don't think the entire cable needs to be replaced, but the extension meets the camera cable somewhere in the middle of the ceiling so I cant reach it without taking down the shelves and headliner.I did not build this Van myself so I am hesitant to start ripping it apart especially without a garage.

I am now of thinking of bundling a bunch of work together such as the camera and installing a maxair vent fan since both will require a removal of the head liner
You might want to talk to Edge VanWorks in Livermore. They specialize in Promaster upgrades, installing a Maxxair being one of them, and though they're kind of far, I've used them for several upgrades and trust them.
