i just bought the valve adjusting wrenches from him a few weeks ago, and was fairly impressed....although i thought the cost was more than i should pay for 2 wrenches and the shipping wasnt exactly lightning fast, the instructions are pretty detailed...

what you could do is get whatever parts you need from a cheaper source and if you need instructions try instructions are actually on video as opposed to just some directions printed out on paper...much much easier to understand, for me anyway

Just stay away from the "Dash Light Brightness Upgrade" or whatever he calls it. The bulbs he provides are overwattage and will melt the lighting prisms/channels of your instrument cluster, despite his claims that they're "safe".
