    Well not what I want to do for the rest of my life (Law enforcement) But it is what I like doing. It is a local fabricating shop------building everything from full blown Baja race truck to silly stuff for a local school band-----I get to do everything from cutting, torching, bending and when i get good at it welding. The best part of it is I get to work on my truck for cost----all the tube work (cage, crossmembers, etc.) The guy is known all over the Southwest so I could be working here for a while /forums/images/icons/grin.gif .Best part is I can finally pay off a few old friends and REALLY get working on my truck...sorry i was just real excited about it and had to share it w/ all my CK5 friends /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/smile.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Congrats-getting paid for what you enjoy doing definitely is a little more stress free! Wish I had something like that!

    Be a sponge and soak up everything you can. Once you figure our how to do a few things then watch out! You'll be dangerous to the local pavement pounders! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif I had a job like once. I didn't think I would stick around for very long, but I ended up there for 8 years. I learned so much, that I RARELY pay anyone to do anything to my truck. When you build it yourself, there's a whole 'nuther factor in it. It's YOURS! Literally! Mine is all me. I still have a bunch of stuff to do (don't we all?? /forums/images/icons/grin.gif ) but when I'm done, I'll know exactly what's in it and how it was done, and when you know something that well, it's a part of you. I can tell what size any of the bolts are on my truck and EXACTLY what tools I need for anything I want to do. My wife shakes her head when I go to my tool box, take out 3 or 4 different tools and walk over to my truck and replace/repair whatever it is in a matter of a few minutes (in most cases, the bigger stuff takes at least an hour /forums/images/icons/grin.gif ).
