    It depends on your skills. My buddy is just now getting good at welding after a year or so of learning. He kept burning holes in sheetmetal. Ask some locals who they reccommend, or maybe someone whos good locally will help. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    For $300 or less buy yourself a 110 Flux Core Wire Fed Welder from Harbor Freight or elsewhere and do it yourself. It's a nobrainer.

    You could use a oxy-acetylene setup to do that as well, much easier to not burn holes in the sheetmetal with a gas set.
