greetings wing chun friends. I am a traditional karate stylist that recently studied wing chun and learned the basics of chi sao and sil lum tao :supcool: (Spelling?)
It has greatly expanded my martial skills ( I think anyway)
problem is I can't afford to continue my training, any suggestions from you guys on how to practice by oneself?

Perhaps you could find a few people in your area that share your situation that you could work out with.
Maybe teach some of your karate class mates the techniques so they can practice with you.

Meet a new girl who doesn't want to play too much on the first date and try to grope her. That ought to give you lots of practice. If she is a karate student, even better.:)

I am sorry to hear that. Only thing you can do is continue to practice what you have learned until you can afford lessons. If you know anyone that has studied southern kung fu styles, southern mantis, hung gar, or wing chun obviously you may be able to practice chi sau with them. I really wouldnt know how you would go about practicing chi sau by yourself, I mean it sort of defeats the purpose. But may be one of the Kung Fu experts on the forums may have a way. Good Luck Andy.

Where are you located?

Several of us at this school have trained in Lameco Eskrima and Pekita Tersia. There's no wing chun between Houston and New Orleans that I'm aware of but Eskrima is pretty common. We also have some BJJ and Goshin Jutsu folks.
