There are lots of kits out there. All depends on your tastes. As far as being able to pull it off.......well------if you have 3 things you can
1) small amount of mechanical ability and a lot of spare time
2) A good place to work with enough room and basic hand tools
3) enough money to bring you from begining to end
All of these are relative to the size of the project you take on.....
You are off to a good start research----- you can never ask enough questions. And remember no matter what have FUN
