Anyone with welding experience near Thousand Oaks?

Hi,
I need to replace the floor pans in my 65 Giulia Sprint. I'm going to order the panels from Classic Alfa or Alfaholics, but I've never done any welding. Is there anyone nearby who wants to come and help/teach/do?

I'll supply plenty of liquid refreshment, food, and equipment if necessary!

Antoni

I'm about 75miles south in torrance/redondo. I could show you some things? Do you have a welder? To do any decent job you are going to need 220V in your garage and at least a semi decent MIG welder. I got a TIG and a MIG if you are into traveling. Is this for a future racecar or show car? If show you better find a pro TIG welder in your area.

Thank you for the offer! The car will be simply a solid driver. I don't plan on racing it, or entering any concours with it, so I'm just looking to cut out the rust and weld in some replacements sheetmetal. I'm probably only going to MIG weld the panels in, and when I get closer I might take you up on your offer to show me some tips.
