Default Garage / installer near Edinburgh?

have bought some LED headlights and internal lights , i realise they should be easy to change but was looking to see if i could have someone thts done this stuff before to do but cant seem to find anyone. also looking for a garage thata can help with a parking sensor problem.

I was suggested auto installs but they are closing due to virus stuff.

Can anyone help reccomend anywhere or anyone with either or both issues?

best bet is to install the headlights using a plastic container and a black pvc liner. It's the safest way to get a decent install and avoid dazzling other drivers with poor alignment. You can usually find a suitable liner under the sink and the plastic container is likely in the corner of your kitchen.. The interior bulbs are pretty easy if you bought the right ones. Super easy instruction videos on youtube. Two flat head screwdrivers is the most you need, and thats just for the vanity mirror ones.
