Skip Fitch ~ Owner
Owner of Streetnoyz Customs, San Diego for 15 years, Skip has over 25 years in the auto industry as an electronics specialist. Skip is an off-road and vintage car enthusiast and you will find him most weekends riding the dunes, going to a vintage car show or watching Supercross. Skip got his start in electronics by installing his own system in his first car, from there he started working at an insurance replacement company.
Working there gave him the knack for repairing car audio systems that had been stolen from vehicles. It also taught him how to work with insurance company’s, autobody shops, lock smiths and several other trades vital to the car electronics and customizing industry. In the early 1990’s he built several IASCA (International Auto Sound Challenge Association) competition vehicles that he took to several car audio competitions throughout the western US.
In the span of a few years he won almost every show that he entered and even won a world title in 1992 at the IASCA international finals in Oklahoma city. After a short few years Skip became one of the top installers in the US.

There really is too many to list!
On the weekends when I’m not an car audio guru, I like to ride motocross, or my side by side and work on my mid century home.
