I've always wanted to learn how to weld, but I don't have the resources to do it.

Yeah, you can get a pretty decent MIG welder for not a whole lot of money. If you spend a bit more on wire, you won't need to use Argon for shielding.

I've been throwing around the idea - I really need one. For instance, welding the O2 bungs into my headers. I'll probably have someone from work (that another friend of mine works with) do them for not a whole lot, when I could do them for free. He'll probably do a better job, but if I had one and was decent with it, I wouldn't have an issue.

Also, @money_man , I did find out the spoiler on the driver-side wiper blade is screwed on. Took it off and pitched the torn blade/bracket. Maybe I'll need it in the future, or someone else will!
