    One thing that I learned the hard way is that when you weld on lambo doors, make sure you cover the windshield. I got metal shavings IN my windshield and then they rusted, I had to replace the whole thing. Look into purchasing a good mig/tig welder, I had a craftsman.

    Damn thats crazy never heard of that issue but most definately good to know lol. There are a couple of ppl on here that have welding equipment and experiance....Illest, Ranger Danger, not sure who else think Reborn as well. Actually playing with the idea of a club track car in the members section. strictly for the track...and for the entire club by the club. Would def be fun to learn with driving and maintaining/fabricating.

    If going to metal I'd start with a chemical stripper like the airplane stuff they sell at walmart. Save ya lots of hours, sandpaper, sweat and a huge electric bill.
