I used to think the trans was dark magic and wouldn't dream of going near it myself. That changed this year and with the help of this forum I got my trans sorted. There are plenty of useful threads here that will help, and some real experts willing to help. If you want to see a recent first time trans rebuild thread here's mine:

Have fun

Thanks Mick. Hopefully it will sometimes help somebody doing a trans for the first time, just like your trans thread was very helpful to me - both in providing information and in giving me the confidence to try doing it myself.
