    Hey everybody,

    First off, im 14 years old and im going to be building a R16. Second, this build will be comletely done by me for learning the fundimentals. The only thing i will be getting assisted in is the ordering of parts and engine/tranny work. My dad purchased me the plans for christmas as a learning experience for welding cutting wiring etc.

    Today we put in a chassis jig in the garage from my dads shop used to make race car frames but it looks like it will work. its 60 inches wide and 144 inches long so i can only hope for the best. il try to get up some pictures of the table tomorow after i get my homework done.

    Your father is a very smart man to have you do it yourself.
    And you are one lucky kid.
    Let us know if you need anything but you probably have all the help you need at the dinner table.

    Nice jig.Have you had ANY welding experience? If not I highly suggest that you take a class somewhere to get some expert help in your endeavor.Welding is not something that can be mastered in a few days.Good luck on the project!ASk all questions before making a move! Several here will be glad to help with info.
