Very nice. I will try to make it.
I've always been mechanically inclined since I was a kid, with regard to electronics at least. Believe it or not, this is the first car I've actually messed with. I have the belief that the best way to learn anything is from experience and getting your hands dirty. Mistakes will be made (and trust me, I have made many - sometimes expensive) but that's how you learn! I'm definitely not an expert on most things... still learning a lot!
Things really aren't as difficult as they seem at first. As with most things in life, you need the right tools, knowledge, and a little bit of courage and luck.
This forum has been great. There's a lot of information here and I've met some really cool people.
