You're quite hardcore. EcoModder needs to start doing some production quality videos on this kinda junk

LOL - I dunno if I can take video of swapping an engine in the Saturn or not... I can give it a shot, but I'll definitely be taking pics, for sure.

It's most definitely going to end up with and identical engine... no ecomodding this one, yet. We just want to get it running, first.

I've worked on VW's before and when I changed my first Honda axle I was expecting it to be the same kind of deal, I was so wrong, took me just over and hour, the last time I changed a Honda axle it was for my brother and he was going to help, but wanted to make a sandwich first, by the time he came out with food in hand I was done, I spent more time putting tools away then working on the car.

I was thinking we could just have a bunch of general car work videos, since we have those skills. It's hard to video with only one person working though

If I get the adapter cord for my camera, I'll make a mount for it and start recording the jobs I do, then send the video to someone on here for editing (I suck at editing video).

I'm sure someone would take the job of editing some video to help with a DIY wiki on Ecomodder, right?

Fair enough - Hey, I'm going to need an address for a shipping cost calculator for that axle.

Hey, you forgot about the swearing when you don't get the splines lined up correctly on the inboard end. And then more swearing when you can't get them lined up on the outboard end...
