If you have MIG it isn't that much to go TIG. As for welding Aluminum it is a lot easier than we believe as far as skills go BUT you need knowledge to know what the heck you're doing. I am not a welder and all my aluminum welding experience was during work shops at the EAA convention, If you know what you're doing as far a set up I find it easier than steel. As far a thinness at EAA we saw guys welding pop cans together. After a 1/2 hour instruction they had my 14 y.o. daughter pushing a 3/8" wide bead across two 1/8" thick aluminum plates she was welding together with an Oxy-acetylene torch. The instructor said the last time he saw a bead like that was on a 1930's coach built aluminum Rolls Royce body.
