What's your gig?

I was just curious what you guys do? Are a lot of you mechanics or at least have mechanical backgrounds?

Like I said in my earlier post, I've wanted a Camaro since I was 10 but have always just had cars that got me from A to B and weren't thought of afterwards. Now that I have my Camaro and I'm ready to start playing with her and doing my modding and such I find myself super excited, albeit, a little nervous.

I'm a composer by trade, no real mechanical background to speak of. I'm not helpless, I change my own oil, know how to plug a flat, know the difference between a crank shaft and a window crank lol, but Ive never really dove in and done stuff with my car . I feel it would be cheating or, at least less fulfilling, to take mods to someone else to do, at least ones that should be easily done yourself, but I am indeed a bit nervous that I'll screw something up. =)

Photographer & Graphic Designer. After being a Camaro owner for all of 7 days now I'm finding myself obsessed with trying to cram as much mechanical, performance, and detailing info in as I can. Never owned a vehicle that inspired me to do more than just drive it. It's exciting yet I see this hobby turning into an expensive habit!

I work in the oil industry. I think I'm in the same boat as you, I like doing the work on my Camaro myself but don't know too much about it.
