The world of DIY ideas is seemingly never-ending and full of fun, unique solutions to everyday problems. It’s never been so simple to skip taking something to the shop and just fix it yourself.

Some projects, however, should still be left to the professionals — like car repairs. You might think you’ve got a little junior mechanic hidden somewhere in you…but most likely, you’ll end up like these people. At best, your creation makes you look like a mad scientist; at worst, you end up with something much worse than a hefty auto bill.
