Well I was finally able to go and pick up a welder. A total faff, but that is my fault. I still have to clear out a ton of crap "AKA Facebook Marketplace items" but I am optimistic that I can put my foot to the pedal in the next week or so.
Before I do anything else, I need to get the fenders cut and squared away. I am hoping that I am able to teach myself how to Tig. I have a couple of projects around the house, including welding a stout 3/8" thick stainless griddle, which should get me into the swing of things.
A couple of good videos can be found below from "This Old Tony". I think I will start there.
