I did the drivers side of my car with steel rod and gas. It isn't bad for the inner bits but slow on the outer body. I saved up and bought a good quality Miller MIG and finished the passengers side in half the time.

Nice job.

Right you are. Tlaked to the guy about it. He said He is going to finish the outer panel with the mig welder.
I agree with You. Its faster and a cleaner weld.
Next up...the floor pan.   :o
