There’s something incredibly satisfying about being able to use motorsport fabrication techniques to modify and improve aspects of your car, truck or motorcycle.
These techniques apply regardless if you’re building it for the street, the race track, or off road trails.

Just as importantly, they will give you the flexibility to build components or make modifications that don’t exist in the aftermarket, providing you with the flexibility to get ahead of the competition.

In this course you’ll learn the skills and techniques that I’ve picked up and perfected over the last 20 years in the industry. You’ll learn the fundamentals behind motorsport fabrication giving you a solid understanding of the materials, tools, techniques and practical skills that you’ll need to perform a variety of fabrication tasks. You’ll learn about the pros and cons of the different materials we use in motorsport fabrication, as well as how to decide which is the correct material for a particular task.

You’ll learn about techniques for cutting, shaping, notching, bending and welding materials and how to decide what tools are required. While it’s a topic that’s often ignored or overlooked, you’ll also learn about personal protective equipment, and what you need to stay safe while fabricating. This knowledge is presented via easy to follow video modules covering each individual topic.

What you will learn
  • Fundamentals Behind Motorsport Fabrication
  • What Materials to use for what Jobs
  • Practical Skills for Fabrication Tasks
  • Techniques for Cutting, Shaping, Notching & Bending
  • When to use which Welding Technique
