DIY youtube videos

I'm not sure about all of you but when I am at a restaurant I need to look at the pictures in order to find out what it is that I want to eat. So, I was thinking every time I need to do something to my G I look it up in the forums and read about how to do it. What I'm thinking about doing is loading some videos up on youtube of me actually doing the work. I'll probably start off with videos showing where things are, showing how to take out the door sills and how to fix them, removing the brush guard, installing all the guards, oil changes, things like that, as that's pretty much where I am at anyways with my abilities. Let me know if you guys think it would be a good idea or if there is already something like this out there. If it works out people could send me the videos and we could make a good source for people with G's to go to who are like me and need a good visual to help them out.

Hope to hear from you all
Scott

Scott,

I've put up videos on YT of various maintenance things I've done on my W204 C320CDI and my W639 Vito van and my motorcycle.

So do it to share the knowledge.

Scott.

I'm riding for you #52, my dear son Cameron 1985-2009
