    Practice a lot, preferably on scrap. *Welding isn't that difficult, but it takes practice and coordination.

    Happy Birthday, and have fun! I started back when i was 14 too, building little briggs powered go karts, and lawn mowers. I'm 18 now, and haven't accomplished much... I've had my engine for 2 years now, lol. Need to get that buggy going.

    Yeah im sure your dad will be able to help you as far as welding goes, well to get started anyway. After you learn what to look for in a weld you will be out there all the time doin scrap welds on stuff. *

    What do you have/plan to use for an engine and tranny? And Im guessing you and your dad already have most of the tools at the house you will need ie. pipe bender, welder etc. *or does he bring them from the shop?

    Great looking work.

    Keep the pix coming.

    It's fun to go back after you've finished the build and see how it all came together.

    It s nice to see some bobs and string,i used to work part time for a drag chassis guy and i would crack up at all the plumb -bobs he had and would hang from everywhere on the car.

    Very nice precision work,someone there knows what their doing.

    Yes pics,pics,pics.
