    These days isn't the answer just to get yourself a 3d printer? :)

    My advice is start with something simple like a repaint with some simple parts swapping.

    Also don't be afraid to fail, that's the best way to learn! I am fairly experienced at customizing and l still have bins of failed projects lying around.

    Use this> 'Tutorials and How Tos'
    Yes very, but I believe there are ways to get access to to them without purchasing one. In Seattle at least there're workshops you can get memberships with or rent access to that have 3D printers and 2D laser cutters, and I think I remember hearing about an Uber-esque service somewhere where individuals rent theirs out. For me personally the problem is getting access to good CAD (3D modelling) software that's compatible with my Chromebook and inexpensive.
