Hmmm....quite honestly, no I'm not.
It seems like a big task, but when you break it down into its component parts its not too daunting. I've built several engines and gearboxes before so I have a good understanding of how they go together and when to consult the manuals for the critical bits. I got hold of a copy of the oem honda civic manual which I needed for stuff like torque settings and the correct procedure for installing the chain tensioner, but general assembly is just a matter of being methodical and taking your time.
Likewise, when I took the car apart I made a note of anything that was new to me so that I new how to reassemble it. Stuff like the shims inbetween the chassis and the subframe. I've never removed the subframe on an elise before, but now that I have I know what goes where and how it goes back together. Taking stuff apart is the best way to learn I've found!
