I do all my work on my car. My parents wouldnt let me do my clutch though, so they paid for the install. And the rear gears I had installed but will be doing my self soon.

Anything int he motor department, I will tackle. Infact just about anything.

I dont do them by myself, I get my b.f or dad to lead the way.

I changed the timing belt in my honda almost completely by myself. with my b.f overseeing it . I felt pretty proud of myself. I have a scar on my hand to remember it by. (I hurt myself and I cried) lol

i do mine when i have time. some stuff is just to effecient for me to pay to have it done vs. me doing it. my time is worth just as much as the guy working on it. so if he can get something done in 3 hours when it will take me 4-5 hours i dont really have ill just pay the person and be done with it. but i get sick of being jacked around. ive yet to find someone i would let touch a critical part on my car. ive had it to 3-4 dealershits and they all have failed except 1.
