So, for the most part, I know how an engine works. I understand how a car converts liquid fuel to physical power, and most of the concepts behind the operation of a vehicle. Recently, i've begun to love messing with cars, and have noticed that with my technical mind, I could hopefully learn to be a competent mechanic. My dad was one of the best mechanics I've known, and I enjoyed learning from him.
At first, I had no direction, but from a quick Google, I read about quite a few people who either completely disassembled and reassembled cars because of self interest or because their parents tasked them with the job. Many say it's where they started and I'd like to buy a cheap, older car, truck or motorcycle to disassemble and reassemble. Can anyone think of a better way to learn? Is it okay if I come here to ask questions on the reassembly?
Also, I can't seem to find any tags appropriate, and can't create any, as I don't have a high enough reputation, but if anyone knows any, feel free to edit my question.
