im planning on getting my car painted and i heard its a hell lot cheaper if you do the body work yourself.. have any of you done that? strip the paint, welding, shaving/filling in emblems? how hard is welding? i want the door handles cut out and welded in with metal, a few rust spots possibly cut out.. or if i could get away with it just sanded down completely. i think i got everything down except for the welding.. any suggestions or websites on how to weld? thanks in advance!
