Thanks for the input LewisNClark!
This is exactly the "Way I Feel about it" It just not "Cost Effective" to build a ONE TIME deal UNLESS you just WANT to do it!
I used to tell folks this same thing when I worked in a body shop. "YES - you can paint a car/bike, etc, -. BUT - when you're done it will have cost you TWICE as much $$$ in twice the amount of time trying to LEARN how to do it and your paint job MIGHT be 1/2 as good as someone who KNOWS what he's doing in 1/2 the time.
I KNOW that this is "Most Likely" MY only time and I want the BEST JOB I can get!
