Like most I do 80-90% of the work on my cars. Farm out the machine work, but do all the planning and assembly on engines. I have rebuilt auto trannys, but probably will never attempt one of the newer ones. The only thing I didn't do on my Rambler is the final paint, though I did 90% of the prep, including primer. I did paint under the hood and the interior with single stage acrylic in the exterior color (which is base/clear). I did part of the upholstery -- I covered the door panels and station wagon rear side panels and wheel wells. I cheated with the seats -- I went shopping at the local pick-n-pull and found some that didn't have much wear and were the style and color I wanted.
