Eh, I still would rather do the work myself. I don't trust anyone to work on my car.

Aww, come on! You've gotta learn one way or another. Just pay attention to how it comes apart and pit it back together with the last piece first. You can do it!

Just take your time watch some videos, get all the tools you need. Go to a junk yard if u want and practice on one. Cus for me or most of us its not about the money.... Its about trusting the shop to do it right
