I have been welding for many years and I don't stick weld any thing thiner than 1/8" and up. For body sheet metal I use my MIG with a wire called 20gauge. It is sold by J.W.Harris. It is the best I have found for MIG wire on thin materials. It is an iron cored steel wire and you need to use C25 gas with it as recommended by the manufacturer. I also use TIG on the really thin stuff or oxy/accet depending on what I am welding at the time. MIG is fairly easy to learn also, I would recommend a MIG welder with the gas setup for what you are wanting to do, just my 2cents worth.
