Default Help with ar upper

Is there anyone in the SF Bay Area that has knowledge on assembling an upper that is willing to give me a hand, kinda personally walk me through it. I have all the parts; upper receiver, bcg, barrel etc, the only problem is that I'm kinda hesitant to do it by myself for the first time. So any help from a fellow member would be good. Anyone?

Do you have a vice block and a vice for your upper? Mulitool or barrel nut wrench? Standard setup? Its not very difficult at all. Im in socal but feel free to pm me if you have questions, I'm sure there's a bunch of people willing to help out also. The most tedious part is properly torquing your barrel nut and aligning it for your gas tube, assumming you're using a standard barrel nut. And don't forget to grease your threads.

I'm only a couple days away by USPS and I assemble an upper far cheaper than you can buy all the tools needed to do it right by yourself.
