Default a friend and i want to build an ak

Where should we get our kits? What kind should we get? We do have access to a full metal shop. Should we get flats or 80% receivers? And last question whats an average build time? Thanks all for the help, we "built" our ar's but we want something more challenging.

Ak-builder.com the barrels are already headspace is already done. 3-4 hours to build. Then paint or parks rising. Takes another 3-4 hours. If you buy a kit without the barrel populated add another 2 hours.
Armsofamerica.com, apexgunparts.com, what's country.com, atlanticfirearms.com, centerfire systems.com

Flats seem to be the most common way to do it.
http://whatacountry.com/parts-kits.aspx has some of the better deals by the time you factor in shipping.
