I have experienced this type of thing. I was in the Army in 1984 to 1988 at FT. Benning on Kelly Hill. Just down from the main parking lot was an Automotive self help shop. It was Awesome!!! They had tool rental, lifts, tire machines, reference library,a few oscilloscopes 3 paint booths. Even some mechanics on hand."experts" I do think you had to sign a waiver. And if you got stuck or in over your head the "experts"(for a fee of course)would bail you out. I practically built a car from the ground up there. One of the only fond memories I have from the Army.
Ive always wondered if this could be done off post in real life. I'd like to see someone pull off this kind of thing.
All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.
