Any one in the Bay Area? Need some help with ignition switch...

Hi guys,

I was trying to swap out my ignition switch last night on my 99 Boxster and unable to put the new one back into the car correctly. I thought I had done it right on my first try and when I plug the negative battery connection back to the car, the car does not receive any electrical power and is unable to turn the key to the on position. I'm guessing I didn't install the ignition switch correctly and now my car will not start. Is there someone in the Bay Area willing to give me a hand with this? I'm willing to compensate to get my car back to life!
