I have tried manythings with some success but I have never coded anything other then Q3 and Q2 and that is where I learned to code in the firstplace. I want it clean not hacked. Let me know what you guys think the best plan swould be....as I am just hacking code together with limited success!!!

Refactor. Personally when I'm doing new developement I create a nice design and implement that. However if I have to use someone elses I just implement the code as quick as I can then do refactoring to remove the hacks. Its a good way of keeping you focused and ensuring you dont over engineer things.
I've recently read a good book on the subject called 'Working Effectively With Legacy Code'. You might not think the code is legacy, but basically the author defines legacy as any code without tests. Heres an article by the author of the some title.
