i also use flux core but i have heard that the flux will leave a residue on the panels if your welding body panels . causing problems with paint adhesion and or spots in the paint . is this true ? do i need to buy a set of bottles and gauges for my welder , im getting ready to do some patch work on my car . the place that sold me the welder said that i needed the bottles that flux core wire would ruin my work .
