      Do not underestimate the value of a good teacher.

      A question like that should tell us a lot more about your situation first.

        Are you trying to make a career move or just want to learn to work on your own stuff?

          Buy an old car that doesn't run with body damage and restore it to it's former glory. When your done you'll be there. You tube is a great source. Books, there is a lot of great information in books. Another human, find someone willing to give you some hands on help. Getting the old car is how I figured out how cars worked and how to do body work. Did the same thing with my son, he got a 73 Firebird and after a few months in my garage he had a good looking runner.

            Back in the day 40+ years ago used cars were cheap like $50-$100 and most had big engines in them. It was a great era and learning experience...Bob

              As for metal working equipment, hit up craigslist for anything millermatic, as these are good mig welders that work pretty good on auto body sheet metal. If you have the budget, hit craigslist for a hypertherm plasma cutter.
