New Girl from So. Cal

Just checking in here! I've only been wheeling for 2 1/2 years and interested in fabricating for 2 years! Hehe

I've taken some welding and automotive classes at the local college since I knew absolutely nothing about anything... haha wait...I still know nothing! Anyway, I'm here to learn some more. Someone on another forum I frequent recommended this site.

Here is what I drive...

86 Toyota 4runner with a few goodies, 70 Toyota fj40 Land Cruiser with more goodies, 83 Toyota Pick Up with even more goodies....

I will post pics when I get them loaded into the gallery...

It's nice to meet you all!

Welcome. There is plenty to learn on here and a few folks with Toyotas too. You should fit right in.

And to know that she started out correctly by going with Toyota's is even better! (Poke poke poke@ Jeep crowd)

Haha Right on! That Land Cruiser needs some engine work, so I haven't been able to drive it nearly as much as I have wanted. I've taken it up Cleghorn and it has been in the Victorville Christmas Parade.

The truck I daily drive the most is my 4Runner. You might have seen that one around this summer... no top and no doors! It's the only way to go when it's hot out!

j/k welcome to OFN

I look fwd to seeing your fab as you start out. You already have a great start at the welding etc
Do you have a shop and tools at home, or just school for now?
