I have NEVER used a mechanic in my life. I am a decent engine builder, and also do well with electrics. Electronics are another matter. Always hated digital electronics. I also don't do manual transmissions, differentials, or transfer cases. These require special skills, talent, and tools, and it is not something I had any desire to get into. So I have had things like that built/rebuilt for me. I had my last race car transmission built to my specs and shipped to me by a reputable place. It worked fine. It was not cheap, but it was a lot cheaper than if it had failed and took my engine and possibly the whole car with it.

I am a firm believer in doing it yourself if you can. But I also realize that not everybody can. I know people who should not be trusted with a pair of scissors. If you are one of those, you have little choice but to have it done. And that is not meant as an insult. Nobody knows how to do everything. Some are mechanically inclined, some are not.
