I find it much easier to weld body panels with my TIG welder, as the warpage is much less, because you can control the heat WAY better, the resulting weld isn't hard like a mig weld, so you can hammer it flat instead of grinding it.

MIG is much faster, and easier for a novice to learn how to get good welds.

Later, mikey

Body panels can be warped with any welding process but properly done either TIG or MIG will work just fine. TIG if done right will produce a better more workable weld than MIG with less warpage, the key words here are IF PROPERLY DONE but that holds true for either MIG or TIG.
