DIY Head Gasket

Just finished replacing my head gasket started friday afternoon and finished sunday night!!! it was an awsome learning experiance! there was nothing god awful hard about it just time consuming. No special tools except for good tourqe wrench, an angle wheel (and one 3/8 drive snapon ratchet because it makes us feel Legit) The only heads in this were two 17 year olds and two 20 year olds. Yes it was intimidating but it was well worth the learning experiance. If you just follow the tips and trick on the forums you can do it!! Ill post up all of my pics tom. I had fun so i guess thats all that counts
