If the FAA will let me decide whether or not to take off in bad weather, and leaves me to decide if flying into a thunder storm is a bad idea, why don't they trust me to decide whether or not I can work on my own plane? I learned a long time ago, dealing with motorcycle mechanics, no one is going to take as much care with my stuff as I do. The number of videos of planes having mechanical failures after maintenance indicates to me this carries over into aviation as well.
