    Bumper Progress

    i'm in the process of getting all the materials needed to build my front and rear bumpers.so far i've got 2x6x11ga. tube,1/4in.thick "L" steel for the brackets,if that'll work(what's everyone else using?),a reese hitch that i would like to be tied into the rear bumper somehow,a pintle hook for the face of the rear bumper(mack truck style for rear attachment point and tow hooks for the front from a rig)so far i've got only $130 into everything.that's only for the 2x6 tube.the other stuff was given to me or traded for.my problem is...I DON'T KNOW HOW TO WELD!!!:frown1: would anyone be willing to do some welding for my sorry ass in exchange for liquid assets or what little bit of cash i can scrounge up?i've tried arc welding but i'm beginning to realize that, for me,welding is just a fantasy.:blush: any help would be greatly appreciated,thanks!
