Find the volume of the solid generated by revolving about the line x = -1, the region bounded by the curves y = -x^2 +4x -3 and y =0.

Attempt at a Solution:

I know that subtracting y = 0 from y = -x^2 +4x -3 will give the area in 1 dimension. So, would you use shells? I'm not sure how to set this up.

Additionally, the solid is being rotated around x = -1, so it must be different than problems with solids revolving around x = 0, correct?
