If your needing to do alot of thin material, like on cars, then MIG is the way to go. For all around something that will run .035 wire is great. If your planning on doing nothing but sheet metal then you can go with a smaller machine as .023 wire will be the way to go. Case in point, I helped a buddy do a little bit of body work on a 57 Chevy the other night using my MIG machine. Even the 'thick' metal on it didn't like my welder as I run .035 wire on it. Problem was I couldn't turn it down enough to melt the wire and not burn through the metal being welded in some spots. Having done alot of sheet meal over the years I was able to make it work for the most part, but there were still a few burn throughs (or bondo holding points...LOL) in the finished product where corrosion had made the metal so thin that I really don't think anything would have worked. Given what he's doing with it though it was just fine like it was and he was happy with the results.
