Hi Guys
I am in need of a fabricator/welder in my area being, Lincoln, CA. 95648.  Age, health, and eyesight has made welding a nightmare and so it seems to figure stuff out as easily as I used to.  Friends call it old age.....I call it something else! I have the welders, grinders, cut off saws, ETC,  just need  people who have CJ-2A fabrication/welding knowledge. 

basically need to change out the front crossmember and box in the frame for sag steering. It's a bare clean frame  so working/welding conditions are good. 

Thanks, Jim
Jim

I hear ya Jim !
 Without good vision, steady hands and mental clarity; quality welding becomes impossible. 
Myself I have to wear cheater lenses, lean on everything near me and even double check the books when deciding on techniques.

I had the X2 lens that snapped into my welding helmet but I'm past that stage it seems. Add in mild Parkinsons  and welding becomes modern art.
