Easy? Id hate to give any younger rodders out there the impression that building a body is just a short walk in the park.

I suppose if you don't care what the body looks like when you are done it might be easy. Or possibly Chopt48 (like a couple of other guys on the forum) have enough experience that body building has become fairly routine - and thus "easy" to them. But easy has never been a term I, as an amateur, would ever use to describe building a body. Challenging, yes. Time consuming, yes. Fulfilling, yes. Doable, yes. But easy? Don't count on it. If you don't come prepared with lots of patience, lots of time, and lots of decent tools, you are in for disappointment.
