Default G1 Timing Belt DIY request

The last time the timing belt was changed on my 90L was around 2000/01 so its getting to that time to do it again. I called the dealer for a quote and they say it's going to cost around $1100 to replace. Other shops gave me an estimate of around $850. That's way too much for just a 5 hour job so I'm thinking I should learn how to do it myself. The only problem is that I'm afraid I'll mess up the timing and kill the engine.
Has anyone out there put together a DIY for this legend. I found one for the G2 but nothing with pictures for the G1.
Thanks

Check the online manual.I just recently delt with BHG (blown head gaskets) and there is a section there that will explain T-belt replacement.
go here http://www.mediafire.com/?fngdbwmugyy and download the manual youll find it all.

got mine done by my indy, $450 out the door, that including parts. keep shopping around, smaller shops are going to be cheaper than a "named" place.

of course, if you're feeling up to it, do it yourself and I'm sure someone with some expertise in doing it will chime in.

Stephen had some really good photos linked to his photobucket account on the old site - I don't think they ever made it over here. I believe he posted a couple of times on .org, but I'm not sure he comes around anymore since his coupe got smashed again - apparently for good this time...
