"I would wait until I had all the parts and then install. The install will probably be cleaner and you can work out bugs easier."
Without going into details about how to install your equipment, I urge you to take the advice offered above. I just finished an elaborate installation on my RS and consider that there is no better way to understand how to configure things than to lay everything out on a bench, connect everything, power it up with a battery, and check the function of everything. The one gadget I didn't check in this way (the remote audio adapter for my V1) turned out to be the only faulty piece of gear.
If you are doing the install yourself (I think you said no) then it also gives you an idea of what sort of connectors, mounting hardware, stock for bracket fabrication, etc. you'll need. It's a whole lot easier if you can lay in the bits and pieces..not that you ever can...than running out one trip at a time, for another size of crimp connector, or a piece of larger shrink tube.
Good luck! :yeah
