Truth is what shop you're using makes a huge difference. Some shops take your car and you don't see it again until it is finished. I've been fortunate to deal with shops that have allowed me to see the progress as it is happening as well as allowing me to get my hands dirty with them guiding me. Very rare in today's time. I've developed friendships along the way. That is not to say that I haven't had my fair share with scumbag shops..I have.

There are a lot of things to consider when doing your own work. Having the right tools,skills and patience are key for a DIY. Lots of horror stories with DIY guys(plus shops) can be found on a daily basis. Getting hurt and being out of work for months at a time is not cost effective if one is not sure with what they are doing. Knowing your limitations plus time constraints should be considered. Proper planning is key.
