Default Basic rules for fixing things !

#1: Go slowly. Write everything down , and take pictures.

#2: It's already broken , don't worry about breaking it.

#3: Calling in an expert is NOT a sign of weakness , it's a sign of wisdom.

#4: There is a point where "fixing it" is not worth it.

#5: Dirt washes off.
