Community Question: One new skill you must learn to restore your classic?

Something I've learned over the years with my old cars is that they force me to learn new things. 

 

The next "big thing" I need to learn is how to do plastic welding.  I bought a "welder" on Amazon and I will have to practice on some junk part before using it on the big task: the big, broken dashboard in the photo below!

So what's your next big thing to learn?  Wish me luck!

I remember doing the same thing back when I was a kid.

My tool boxes each have a butter knife in them.  Darned near the handiest non-tool-tool I've ever found.

I cracked up reading Rob1's comment on patience. Patience takes time and the older I get the less time I have to learn it. At least now I know that I'm not alone.
