I am conteplating purchasing some welding equipment to replace sheetmetal and pans on next project car(and this would be a 58-64 impala, no the new paper thin sheetmetal thats on cars)............my question is, what is a good welder to do that kind a work and where do you get em and how much do they run? Remember this is only sheetmetal work, no frame reinforcing or anything.
Thanks for all the help fellas..........it sounds like a MIG that has gas capabilities is the way to go for sheetmetal work. Anybody have recommendations of a good brand and where I can get it, model number too??????? Also from what I see you have to buy the gas seperate, what kinda gas do they run and where could I get a tank adn gas?????????
Do not get a flux core welder, it has no place in autobody repair, trust me I do it for a livin'. I have a small 220V lincoln. it a great little welder for the money. Mig is the only way to go. i use stargold gas.
