I am willing to supply the parts I just dont have a welder or know how to weld I am willing to work a payment out with you. I just need help please.
The welding in that job is the smallest portion of the work involved. Cutting the old spot welds out with a spot weld cutter and getting it all prepped, drilled for plug welds, clamped back together straight and flat are the hard parts.
While not quite, it is almost an art form and if you want the repair to look even remotely close to correct, find yourself a body shop guy and get him to help. It will go much better for you and your rig.
