Mine too... I am terrified of messing something up with the transmission but I will undertake any other repair without thought. For some reason the transmission is a mystery to me.

any thing electrical I understand 12 volt systems but when you start off into resisters and milliamp and micro switches I am lost. I suppose that I should get a book to try and understand all of those things and so much more too.

Body/Paint. I have yet to encounter anything mechanical I could not fix...pan gaskets are an art form.
