My first experience using a MIG on sheet metal was welding the top I chopped on my car. A real experience for me. I began to panic when I started blowing holes in the metal. So I cranked the amps down, but then I couldn't get a good weld. It just takes a lot of practice to get the correct setting for your machine. I was using a .024 wire but I'm going to try the .020 wire you folks have mentioned for future welds on the thin stuff.
