    Read the sticky up at the top of the page. Do some searching around this forum.


    Start saving money, and money, then more money. Projects always cost more money than expected.

    Get all your parts ahead of time, plan and plan and plan.

    Watch buying parts ahead of time, Because you don't
    want to pay big bucks for something just to find out
    that it is the wrong part or that it want fit just right
    and you've had it longer than the return policy allows!

    Believe me! I've been there and done that!
    I'm better than some but not as good as other's!

    one is knowing what parts you are goign to need. the sticky at the top of the page is where to go to see the parts you need and to ask questions.you have a 4.3 in it now. right?

    dont let anyone try to shoot down your ideas and dreams. Believe me, some ppl are jealous or just plain stupid. Im about to do a swap myself and Ive had so many people tell me that it cant be done. It just goes in one ear and out the other.
