I will second what Ibesq posted. When I bought my KB1 I didn't even own a welder and had never welded before. I watched a ton of youtube videos, bought a little MIG welder and went at it. My truck turned out really nice. I learned a lot doing that truck. I am currently working on a 1952 Chevy that has a lot of rust. I found out I really enjoy shaping sheet metal and welding in patch panels. There are also hundreds of videos on shaping sheet metal. Instead of watching normal television I watch videos on anything to do with sheet metal shaping and welding.

Thanks! I may have to do that because this truck has a lot of rust!

Definitely, if you have a lot of rust find a good blaster guy. I'm on the last of my rust and it will save you a lot of work and time.
And also start, lurking around ebay motors/parts and if you see something your missing, get it when you see it.
