I am going to attempt a lot of the work myself, but there are some things I know that I will not be able to do. The previous owner had a large selection of manuals in the trunk of the car so I will be able to do a lot hopefully. I just know that there are some things that I will have to defer to the pros on.
I want to make this as much a labour of love as I can though. I will take your advise and do as much as I possibly can myself. I want that satisfaction
