Question adding a vent to the garage

Does anyone know where I can access DETAILED instructions on adding a duct to an a/c trunk in my attic to be used for a new vent to be installed in my garage? I've heard from several people that this task would be simple - but since I've never done anything like this, I'd feel better with some help. I've already purchased the duct, vent, coupler and some expensive silver tape. I'm sure I'll need a tool for cutting into the trunk, and a plan for installing the vent - but that's about all I'm sure about. A resouce for timid yet capable (I think) women handymen would be perfect!

Problem with detailed install

Installs vary so greatly, thats why they haven't made a "standard" way of doing it.

For cutting the trunk line, plian tin snips work well

Are you running flex to the garage ?

Did you buy a separate damper to go in the takeoff of the trunk ??
