Re: hey from ca
Welcome aboard, R.
You can expect problems... we just like to keep them to a minimum. :-)
Al_fisherman and a number of others have put up great threads for preliminary work to be done with the kits so they are close to reliable.
Best to read through a bunch of threads, then post your problem if you are unable to resolve it from the common info ...
My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
