    There is a Fabrication trade school in the Ontario/Fontana area. http://thefabschool.com/

    Thanks! This actually looks pretty cool - I'm out by Rancho Cucamonga pretty often too so if I can't get something started up with my Dad's friends or the race teams, I'll check out their admissions.

    Check out Tech Shop. Many big cities have them now and it's a place where you pay a nominal amount to take classes on various topics: from fiberglass, to welding, to waterjetting and everything in between. Then, you pay a monthly fee to use the facilities and you have total access to hundreds of thousands of dollars of equipment and resources. (as long as you have taken the class for the tools you want to use)

    It's a great place for people that want to fabricate but have no experience doing it.

    I hope that helps,
    Gumby

    That sounds like something that could really work for me, Gumby - especially on my budget. Thanks!

    You have to learn how to at least mig weld, before any fabrication begins. Check out your local college!

    There is no substitute for just plunging in and starting. One thing leads to another and soon enough you have started to get some capability.

    Thank you for your tips and recommendations. I want to say that these days it's not that hard to find help with education. So many services are aimed at helping students. Even help with dissertation isn't something rare nowadays.
