I need some one to site down and teach me, that's the only way I will learn the ways of the force.
So good for you being able to do it on the first attempt
using just the internet and you own knowledge
Me SMASH. lol
All you need to work on anything mechanical is as follows.
The right tool
You need to attack the job with the right attitude. Everything can be fixed. Everyone has to start somewhere and experience will come with time. Learn from the mistakes. Hell, I had stripped screw holes (Fixed it with bigger screw and tap), Pistol grip did not fit (use a wood chisel and carve it down to size), Crack receiver (JB weld sand and paint).
All the issues and fixes have provided me with alot of confidence and satisfaction.
I hope that you will have better success next time. Good luck.
