DIY barter, I'll help you perform a DIY I'm knowledgable in if you help me with one??

Well i'm no mechanic but I have done a few things to my E46 that If I had to re-do twice I could probably do it fairly quick and easy. I also have tools and a garage. There are some DIY I wouldn't want to do alone, so I'll post some stuff up I can do, we can do one or multiple upgrades/repairs if you can help me with some thing not on my list, thanks to any one who responds, I live in Tustin in OC.

I can:
-Change oil, Trans fluid, Diff Fluid (have all tools to do all 3)
-roll front and/or rear fenders (would need to rent a roller/heat gun combo, aprox $50)
-install interior/exterior LED lighting, emblems, Angel Projectors, Depot Tail lights, corners
-change cabin filter, spark plugs, intake, battery, intake boot, clean/replace the ICV
-sand/primer/paint/clear coat Interior trim to match body color, or your choice of color such as Metallic silver/black.
-Re-paint black trim exterior pieces, mirrors, pills, wiper arms
-change front/rear rotors & pads/sensors
-change front sway bar links

SO there are DIY I'm comfortable doing really quick and easily if we have the right tools, and I have a decent selection, I'm also willing to loan my garage and assisnt in any unlisted DIY if you help me with one or ones I would want to do?

Some DIY I would want help with doing it my first time, in exchange for my help:
-Installing headers
-Changing any thing related to front/rear suspension (shocks, control arms/bushings
-Cooling system maintence, (flush, new expansion tank? hoses?
-fuel pump/filter
-Front bumper/fog light install (paint would be awesome but thats prob asking too much)
-Double DIN install
-Brake Fluid Flush
-blower motor lube or replacement (to stop the shaky rattle noise when ac is on, or when cutch is not engaged at a dead stop.

Thats all i can think of at the moment, please PM me so we can work on our cars!
