Suggestions needed: Categorize this list

Need your suggestions. I need to categorize the following into a 4 Categories:

Let see how many difference suggestions I can gather.

- Recalls
- FAQ'S
- Brochures
- Schematics / Diagrams
- "Ask A Mechanic"
- "DIY Online Repair Info"
- "Get Auto Repair Estimates"
- Camaro Gallery
- Reviews
- Classifieds
- Msgboard
- Chatroom

They are all placed into a section on the site called "Maintenance & Research Tools"

1992 Camaro Z28. Blue/silver, Custom Blue/Silver Leather seats, Rebuilt Engine, Cammed, Headers, TT ][ Rims ...
NEW WWW.CAMAROSOURCE.CA
Over 3,500 Camaro Trims, 1,600+ Photo Spotter's Guide, 2,500+ Std. & Opt. Accessories, 3,000+ Factory Options, Forums, Decoders, Reviews, Classifieds...

Here's my suggestion...

- FAQ'S
- Brochures
- Schematics / Diagrams

- Recalls
- "Ask A Mechanic"
- "DIY Online Repair Info" (drop the online part...that goes w/o saying)
- "Get Auto Repair Estimates"

- Reviews
- Classifieds

- Camaro Gallery
- Msgboard
- Chatroom

But I guess I'm a little confused...what will the Camaro Gallery feature under the subheading of "Maintenance & Research Tools". It seems like the last three should be separate from everything else. And what about adding a "Scheduled Maintenance" Section? (in with the 2nd grouping) I can't seem to find decent info on this subject even in my owner's manual.

Also...I think breaking up the classifieds into sub-sections is a good idea. I never read the ones here because there's so much crap I'm not interested in. But if it were divided into say...Interior, Exterior, Engine/Performance, Tires/Wheels/Suspension...then one could just look peruse what interests them.

Sorry for over thinking your question...lol...it's just my nature.

No that's GREAT. Something to think About. What would you use as the categories for those 3 (if we remove Gallery, Msgboard, And chatroom)

I was thinking that the chatroom and msgboard could be part of something to do with getting help.

How about this

FAQ'S
- Camaro Basics
- Brochures
- Schematics / Diagrams

Repairs & Maintenance
- Recalls
- Ask A Mechanic
- DIY Repair Info
- Get Auto Repair Estimates

Products & Reviews
- Product Articles
- Reviews
- Classifieds
- Sponsor Product Offerings (if your going that route)

I'm a little iffy on the Recalls though...maybe they should go under FAQ'S.

I came up with:

[Get Help]

- "Ask A Mechanic"
- "DIY Online Repair Info"
- Msgboard
- Chatroom

[Before You Buy]

- Reviews
- Recalls


But leaves me with:

- Brochures
- FAQ'S
- Schematics / Diagrams

But I am having a bit of trouble coming to a conclusion for a category for the last remaining or if any belong in any of the other two "Before you buy" "Get Help". Plus i'd rather have 3 categories...

So now I am at:

[Get Help]

- "Ask A Mechanic"
- "DIY Online Repair Info"
- Msgboard
- Chatroom
- "Get Auto Repair Estimates"
- Schematics / Diagrams

[Buying Guide]

- Reviews
- Brochures
- Recalls
- Classifieds

Which leaves "FAQ" to go somewhere.

But I think I can split up the "Get Help" as there appears that the 6 in that list can be divided. But can't come up with a good way to break them out. Having 3 in each group would be good.

With

- "Ask A Mechanic"
- "DIY Online Repair Info"
- Msgboard
- Chatroom
- "Get Auto Repair Estimates"
- Schematics / Diagrams

It almost looks like part of the list is ASKING for help to fix their car, and another part is references for fixing their car. (ie. schematics) but I think can be better broken up..

Anyone have more ideas?
