Default Do it yourself headgaskets

I wanted to know if any one has replaced the head gaskets on their own without taking it to a shop? If so, can you direct me to a video step by step? I recently took it to a mechanic, they want to charge me $1800.00. In the meantime since I dont have that amount right now to pay they recommended I put IRON TIGHT sealant which cost $6.00 at the auto parts store until I can afford it. The sealant has worked so far, no problems but I know it wont last forever and it is a quick fix. I wanted to see if I could replace the head gaskets myself. Does anyone have any videos of how to this step by step?
