The DIY concept refers to the ethic of being self-reliant and doing things yourself as opposed to paying others to do it. The term can indicate "doing" anything from changing a light globe, right through to cutting your vehicle in half and installing a hand built, nitrous fueled monster engine.

The obvious question is - with so many stores willing to sell you their already made products, why would anyone want to personally build or modify their vehicle or its components? The reasons vary, but generally stem from the excessive cost of commercial gear, parts not always being built the way you need or want them to be, the satisfaction of creating your own ideas and physically transforming them into reality, or simply wanting things that will never be developed commercially.

What ever the case, TMR promotes the ability of the ordinary person to learn to do more than he or she thought was possible with the following collection of DIY manuals.
