If you haven't got much experience I would let your uncle do it. The downside of you breaking something usually means expensive repairs.

I'd try to talk my uncle into teaching me how to do things. Many benefits come with this, not just tools but experience----and heck, maybe a job someday.

I too questioned whether i should attempt to work on my own car. But to consider it MY car i figured I would have to invest the money and time....so i decided to change the motor mounts on my early 85 944....with my brother and I it took us 9.5 hours to do a 4 hours job....it was daunting and at times hopeless...but if you stick in there you'll feel damn good after have done it...and if have screwed your car up even worse...then you have learned something from the whole experience...I'd say go for it..your uncle can help.
