When I applied for my LSR-I cert at the FSDO, one of the guys there told me before I left -- "Remember, that certificate doesn't allow you to do any maintenance or repairs on your airplane, ONLY the condition inspection. Nothing else."

At first I just decided to smile, nod, let him be wrong, and leave. Then on my way home, I realized that he was 100% correct, even if not for the right reason. The fact that I have opposable thumbs allows me to perform maintenance and repairs.
