Red, That wire is actually .030 but it is a cored wire (not to be confused with gassless) that means it is a tubular wire with an iron powder core that will weld with a lot less current than the same diameter solid wire. It is amazingly smooth with little to no spatter and will make a really good weld at a ridiculously low power setting which translates to less panel warpage and burn through. I have found this to be a very versatile wire that can be used for a lot more than just body panels since it makes a strong clean weld.
