Flux Core Mig

I RECENTLY PURCHASED A BOOK ON BODY WORK, AND IN THE BOOK IT SAYS YOU SHOULD NOT USE FLUX CORE WIRE WHEN INSTALLING NEW BODY PANELS, DOES ANYONE KNOW WHY THIS WOULD BE.
I KNOW USING SHIELDING GAS WOULD BE CLEANER BUT IF IAM GRINDING THE WELDS DOWN AND SEALING THEM WITH PRIMER CAN I STILL USE FLUX CORE, OR WILL IT SOMEHOW AFFECT THE PAINT.
THERE WILL ALSO BE A SMALL AMMOUNT OF BONDO BODY FILLER OVER MOST OF IT.
IAM HOPING SOMEONE HAS DONE THIS BEFORE AND CAN GIVE ME SOME HELP, I ALREADY HAVE THE WELDER, THIS IS WHAT I BOUGHT IT FOR, I DO HAVE A BOTTLE OF STRAIGHT ARGON ,CAN I USE IT TO WELD THE PANELS, AT WORK I USE A 75/ 25 MIX FOR MILD STEEL BUT DONT KNOW IF I CAN USE STRAIGHT ARGON........ HELP PLEASE
