I would agree that install guides are not able to make any install a simple and worry free thing, especially for someone that hasn't done that certain thing themselves before. But the cool thing about them being put on a forum on the internet is that it can get you pointed in the right direction and you have the ability to then take pictures and ask questions as you find parts of an install that do not make sense.
Before I do anything I've never done before, I do a ton of research and find videos and written guides. I then start taking things apart like I'm about to do the job but don't actually start cutting wires or drilling holes or anything else more permanent and dangerous. If I find anything I don't understand, I then ask and figure it out. Once I feel I can handle the job I get started. Usually, even though I practiced before hand and already asked questions, I find more questions I need to ask to finish the job.
With that, if you don't feel comfortable with something, don't do it. I have paid to get things done for me because I don't believe I'll get the job done correctly or well. Also, I am not as adventurous on my 2016 Mazda 6 as I was on my 93 Honda civic or on my 02 ford mustang.
