I come across so many helpful DIYs on here and I can never remember where to find them once I save up the money to fix a certain thing on my car. Just making this post so that I can keep up with my progress on my car because there's a multitude of things that I want to do and it will be nice to have a single place to go to find the links I need, etc. I'm sure I'll be adding to the list and I'll post pics as I go along. I haven't posted any DIY stuff of the things that I've already done because this site covers them all quite well! I would love to call a shop and get a quote for all the completed things to see how much money I've ended up saving by using this amazing forum! It's a SLOW work in progress for me because I guess I gotta buy food and pay bills and do the dang adult thing before I get to play...but it's getting there!

Because I'm a researchaholic, I read TONS of forum posts on here and other websites and gather tips before I start anything. I may use the majority of the instruction steps from one DIY, but then find another forum post (that's not in the DIY section) where I prefer how another person did a certain step that wasn't suggested in the DIY. I will seriously research something for days/weeks/months before I even attempt it. I'm weird and OCD. I can't help it, Banks :grin:
