More pics will be scanned for the audio installs page.

I won't use php. I need something that I can make quick changes and updates to. Colors and themes were chosen by the shop owner.

My goal is to get it to the point that it'* easy to maintain. If he wants to run a coupon or change a product, he can email me, and I can turn it around quickly.

Being a local store, and not an internet seller, the site won't get alot of hits, but it will get SOME.

I set mine up in one night with sol'* help, it makes adding content pretty easy. Coding isn't much different then frames really.

He paid a fortune to have the website set up for his last store. He'* eternally grateful to have a domain and a simple site for free.

He says he 'owes' me. You think I'm gonna get a smokin' deal on a stereo?

Hmmmm......which car do I put it in? The one I hardly ever drive, or the one with a dying trans? Or do I set up both cars for the head unit to move back and forth?

He was a distributor locally for most of those brands for about 5 years. So he gets MAJOR breaks off wholesale on product already. It may end up going internet at some point, but it'* hard to compete in internet audio against the big players with no overhead.

For those using 800 x 600 screen resolution, the left frame is cut off on the bottom. The "Contact" button is off the page, with no scroll bar to indicate that there is more information there. Other than that, it looks fine.

Edit - I just noticed something else. Under the top frame, on IE, it has scrolling information on brands and services. That shows up as 2 empty rectangular boxes on SeaMonkey...if you're going for browser compatibility.

I changed that left contents frame for the time being. Later, it won't be an issue. After the new logo comes in, the top frame will go away, so the contents frame will be higher. Contents will show a scrollbar for now if it'* needed.

Spank you very much!

Got a few spares on tintinstalls.htm.

tinting.htm needs to lose the borders on the linked images, and move to images with tranparency (gif).

caraudio.htm needs to lose the dots after "Authorized Dealer for....." and replace with a colon.

You should move to a js or php template and lose the frames all together. JS would require hard coding or c&p operations, but is very simple. I can set it up for you if you'd like.
