Depending on how you grind your joints, you can use a 110 @ 80 amps with a 40% duty cycle if you're good. That miller is plenty good for you if you know how to weld

Get this.....I did two full frame wraps on my cars and another cars body on frame reinforcement plus many installs with a 110 fluxcore wire welder. It takes longer....but it still gets the job done.
