    Default Work You Wish You Knew How To Do

    Got the idea from Pandy's thread ( http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=150560 ) - what work on your car, that you know can be done (e.g. you've read about others doing it) do you wish you knew how to do your self? Stuff that you want to be able to DIY, not stuff you want to be able to pay someone to do. For me it's changing the LEDs in the dash, but my soldering skills have gone to pot since I last did it at school 20 years ago.
