Trying to weld sheetmetal with flux core wire gives the same results as trying to stick weld it... Slag and pinholes in the weld. Only good use for flux core is just like stick: thicker materials and when shielding gas might be blown away by wind.

Get the Gas MIG set-up to weld thin materials like autobody.
