Do It Yourself!
I'm amazed at "Hometime," the PBS show where the man and woman can remodel a bathroom quicker and with less problems than new construction. Now there is "Horsepower TV" on Spike TV. Two guys will show you how to get more performance out of your car and how to install the parts. Why they install the parts easier than the automotive assembly line! They never have any seized nuts, oil drips, or scraped knuckles! Maybe my mechanic is just beating around the bush!RayH42450@gmail.com

It paints a pretty picture thoughThe impossible takes more time,and costs more money.

Ah so that's how it's done
I've been doing roofs and brick work for most of my life and i just refuse to watch any of those shows after seeing a few, before they started bombarding us with those type shows............

I have been on both side of the automotive issue.
I can honestly say I can install almost anything with no stripped bolts/nuts or messed up stuff. I can change cylinder head gaskets in half the warrenty time. I can rebuild Caravan 4 speed tranny's in less than 45 minutes (Yes, I have had to proove this a few times...were talking driving the caravan in, pulling the trans, replacing bad gears/clutches/seals and have it back together in the caravan and drive out in less than 45 minutes. And that included flushing the trans cooler in the radaitor.)
It's about experience.
Trust me, I have royally screwed up numerous motors in my early 20's trying to make things faster or better.
Until I figured out how to NOT mess things up, I would have had your point of view.
Sounds like you need more experience with things.
Concidentally, now that I have crossed the threshold of knowing how to handle things, I havent screwed anything up in years (every thing from taking motherboards apart and making them work with CPU's they arent designed to work with to rebuilding automatic transmissions to working on Jaguars.)
Then again, I am not exactly the norm of society to start with.

I could've used some editing and time lapse when I rebuilt the brakes on my 67 mustang. lol
