I was in the same boat, I had Welded 35 years before (but had forgotten most of that), so I found that my local College had some night classes on Welding, and I took them-now, I was looking for help w/Tig welding (they only offered Gas and Stick), so I took the Gas Welding Class as you have to learn how to control the puddle (which is similar to both)-

Anyway, it really helped me to learn what to look for, and I was able to not only learn how to control the filler rod and puddle, but to know what a good weld looks like-for me, that made Mig welding a snap.

There are some good welding forums on the 'Net, but nothing works better than knowing the basics and getting out there and burning some rod (and making a lot of mistakes learning!)

Here's a few Forums:

WeldingWeb™ - Welding forum for pros and enthusiasts - Powered by vBulletin

Miller Welding Discussion Forums

This Forum is specifically for welding sheetmetal (Auto):

Processes > Joining Metal - Metal Meet Forums

Good luck, and if you have a specific question I'm sure many will help out-
