it all starts off with making your own door bottoms and patchesthen rockers , if you love doing it you'll find a way, mostly on your own stuff or for others at a greatly reduced price just to get the work in the shop...theres classes all the time the guys at metalmeet can help you out a great deal....I think you'll love it and get addicted too.
tech69: Start with a shrinker and stretcher, a beater bag, and a stump and play with some scrap. You don't even need a wheel to make parts. Of coarse alot of hand planishing would be req'd.
Is Santa Cruz near you? If you go to Metalmeet.com, you'll find they hold a meet there. If you go to the meet, you'll be done.
