I wish you guys would stop referring to home do-it yourselves
as not fully up to par hacks!
I'm a home do-it yourselfer and some of the best DETAILED jobs, I have ever seen comes from people inexperience and experience doing it at home after work.
Years ago when I was doing the vette's, some of the best ones I judged were done at home and I will never forget the black 62
that took second the guy did it in his carport and painted black in the back yard so he would not get over-spray on the house.
Oh did I say it was his first job, all I remember is his first name was Roger and a school teacher in Michigan.
