Re: MI: Welder

Again, what everyone else has said, flux core is for welding on bridges out in the wind, for auto body, gas is the ONLY way to go. It's a few more dollars and you will find it useful over the years after you are done with the truck. A 110 135 am welder will do about anything you ever could need with sheetmetal. HOWEVER. a 220 volt 200+ amp welder will weld anything you want (realistically) now and in the future and it's nice to have.

Chopped, Sectioned, 1953 Corvette 235 powered. Once was even 401 Buick mid engined with the carburetor right between the seats!
Bought with paper route money in 1973 when I was 15.
