Read as much as you can before starting with the purpose of knowing what you are equipped to do and what you're going to have to hand off for a machine shop to do for you. Do you own mics, calipers or snap gauges? Might have to send parts off to be measured if you don't. Access to special tools? Can they be rented locally? The average guy probably has tools enough to to assembly work but you should consider when it is better / cost effective to hand some components off for inspection / reworking. Then you can reassemble the nice shiny new bits together in your garage. Not knowing what's in your shop makes it hard to know. Here's one bit of advice. If you have a hone toss it directly into the trash and ignore anyone who advises you to use one.
