I do everything on my cars including paint and body (still learning though). The only things I dont do are trans re-builds, ring and pinion set-up and upholstery. I do want to eventually learn upholstery though

Home built here.
A friend of mine did paint and body (in his garage at home)
I farmed out: engine machine work, upholstery, rear end build and front end alignment.

I'm saving up for a Johnson's Hot Rod Shop build. I have a long way to go. But then again, I have plenty of blank checks.
