no flux core wire. welder is the same setup the guys use for all the shop collision work. theres not a lot of butt welding on there side that i see but we have never had anything come back because of ghosting issues. like i said if the panel had a factory-ish peel to it, it would hardly be noticeable. but when the panel is flat it stands out.
