Default Fabrication Ref/Tech Info

Hello all, some of you might know me some may not. I have been designing/building/welding/ect. for about 12 years now, mostly for myself and of course the all important customer. I have owned a shop for about 6 years where i do everything from small projects for race teams to complete car builds (on and off-road). my main source of buiz is producing exhaust systems for streetbikes/hd/mx ect. both AP branded and private label. i have owned 2 subarus, an 07 sti and currently an 05 sti. I love the cars, they have so much potential if your willing to put in the money and time in. so with all that intro done i would like to thank whoever made this section possible. welding and fabrication by hand is becoming a lost art to high tech machinery (i cant complain as i use them haha) and builders who sit at a desk all day.

I would like to offer my help to any of you who are interested in giving somthing a try. theres nothing wrong with a lil trial and error, and def no shame in a bad first result (at least you tried). as with anything learning takes practice and more importanly drive. i know alot of you out there are limited at first but with a little good advise and direction, you can feel a bit more comfortable diving in. so please fill this thread with your questions related to design/material/cutting/welding/machining/ect. and i will do my best to make you feel a bit more familiar with what you wanna do.
Kenny

seeing as the DIYer doesn't know what AWS descriptions for stainless are, I(we) could compile alist of commonly used steels for car fabrication..

I'm thinking more of a structured thread on these(MIG+SS) rather than a Q&A.
