Not to sound like "snobish" or anything but , I picked it up on my own. The internet has helped with the overall "idea" but thats about it. I don't come from a gearhead/hotrod family ((I have a car, but dont know how to ride a motorcycle)) but my dad is very cool with my hobbies. He set aside a section of the garage for me to work and doesnt mind me pulling overnighters in it. He just has a thing about gas welders!
