As much as I can at home, including paint (hopefully), though I'll probably have someone stitch up the seats.

I pretty much do all my own work, I'll admit it's not as perfect as most of you guys buy I'm taking my time. I am sending it out for the mini tubs and possibly the interior.

I did all the metal, mechanical, electrical, etc I did most of the body, but I did not do:

Media blasting
Finish body work or paint
Engine build (815hp requires a lot of specialty tools)
Front & rear glass

I would hate to try doing a car without a lift or air compressor/tools.

Home built for me in my opinion. In general I do all my own engine building and tuning, paint, wiring, all assembly work, pretty much everything other than stitching on the interior and machine work on the engine. I do accept help sometimes on some of these things depending on time tables.
