Then I put 2 coats of candy and 2coats of clear. I'll wait a few days, then rub the orange peel, then flow coat it.

i dont have a mig at home by the way but i can borrow one from work if i need to but only ever feel the need when doing plugwelds,so i just do them with the tig anyway

so without being a smart arse they both work
use what you have to get the job done
if you are to buy a tig get one with hf high frequency cause the scratch start fucks your tungsten leading to wavey arc all over the place
definitely you will get a better panel with tig but if you dnt know how to use it properly you will do it better with mig
you can buy a unimig razor tig for 600 bucks which is as good as my 4500 kemmpi at work
then ya need to buy argon bottle for 450 so its a 1000 buck outlay when you can do the job with the mig you already have
am i contradicting myself?
yes 
if ya rich go buy a tig
if ya not keep migging and buy some other parts for your car
Thats my 2 bob

i love this question
they both work.they heat metal and fuse them together
i cant be botheredd to type the long answer,
so heres my short answer
many people mig then grind the weld off.the mig weld is harder than the parent metal.
they grind,grind,grind,till its smooth,not realising there is no parent metal left until its like paper.
more in part 2 after more peoples opinions haha

Starting to look the part. Sorry I've been too lazy to take all the surface rust off.  The car has been sitting in storage for a year. I'll address that asap.
