The next most prevalent mistake. Avoid this by dividing the vehicle into sections.
Formulate a plan of attack. Group similar projects together to avoid duplicate work.

Buy quality parts. Ask about return policies and guarantees when applicable.
Photographs and video footage can be invaluable when you are reassembling your vehicle.
Invest the time and effort needed to maintain an organized shop. You’ll save time, money and frustration.
