New guy from BC!!!

Hey, I am new to this forum but I have been on a few others for a while, mostly RDC and Dezert Rangers and Special Stage.

I am currently taking a Aircraft Structures course and after I complete that I hope to take a few minor day courses on welding or maybe a complete course depending on funds. I love offroading and rally racing, I live in BC so there is a little bit of both. Kinda wish there was more of a desert scene though.

I own a stock 1990 Toyota Pickup 4x4 that I have entered in 1 stock 4x4 rally race and plan on entering into another local event soon. I would eventually like to build a dedicated race vehicle one day, either rally car or a truck. I would prefer to build a truck though cause I would love to travel down to the US and do some of the events down there. I was thinking of buying a dirt cheap 2wd Ranger or Toyota to start working on in my spare time and eventually build into a race truck.

I am from Hope Frog, do you know anything about the KORR series up in Kamloops? I am hoping to build a mini-stock or sportsman class truck sometime in the future to race up there and any other events I can.

As you can see by my join date I am kind of a lurker too haha. I actually just read one of Scootek's threads "87 2wd Toy interior cage" and decided to start actually posting on here too.

I mostly work with sheet metal and do a lot of riveting but I am hoping to get a MIG welder and a JD2 bender and start doing some garage fab.
