Get an IGO-L
Get some 32g Kanthal A-1 (if you plan to get into low res mech vaping get some 28g also)
Get some wick material (many options out there, I prefer Nextel braided ceramic rope)
Get a multimeter and make

The best method I've seen to make a fool-proof coil & wick is the Petar K, or drillbit method. There are a lot of videos on Youtube showing how it's done., here's just one:

At the very least you should open them once each day, squeeze the air out of them and suck fresh air in. The 3 enemies of juice are heat, air and light but they can be used to our advantage when steeping. You can generally expect the juices to slightly darken.
