    I purchased a model a frame kit from speedway motors with the plan to have a friend of mine weld it up for me, but he has been so busy with work he can't get to it... Does anyone know of a fab shop in Connecticut who can weld this frame for me?

    I would guess any good weld shop could do it but I doubt if they would bid it at less than 8 hours labor and they might also include materials such as weld wire and gas. If I were you, I would take the $500 plus dollars they're going to charge you and buy a mig welder and do all the prep. It's not hard to learn to tack weld parts together and when it's time for the completed welds, the actual welding won't take more than a couple of hours.

You can't really expect someone to load all their equipment and come over to your place and weld for a few minutes here and there as your build progresses.

    It is Connecticut. It takes about an hour-and-a-half to drive across the whole thing, depending on construction.
