mig

Mig, it could actually be done with a stick too but I wouldnt recommend it, a mig will do the job nice and pretty and quick. I did mine with a 110 mig, it was plenty hot enough.

paint

Also make SURE to clean all of the paint off where you are going to weld. It can be done without doing it but its a mess and you might not get a good weld

tig is for like aluminum, or softer metals.. mig is ur best bed, most people can mig its easy.. arc is the strogest, but over head welding isnt so much fun (i love to weld and the second i get a hot ember in my ear i hate welding). id say bust out the mig, run a mid wire speed, and a high voltage(what kinda machine do you run? are you a welder? do you know what ur doing lol?)

cams, and all basic bolt ons, arizen seats, cowl hood, and now my buckets got a hole in it (meaning im broke) but when i fix it ill have gears and some trany work

Pretty much anything you can MIG you can TIG. MIG is more for speed, such as production. TIG is a much cleaner type of welding, and IMO stronger. I was TIG welder for 5yrs (stainless steel and AL6XN) and for past 2yrs been MIG welding aluminum. It me I like TIG, it takes much more skill but its cleaner and better looking to me.

its only better looking then mig if you suck at mig...

i can get them both perfect. and mig is way faster obviously. so id just mig my self...

to me they are all easy as cake. i mastered all types of welding. including overhead. and i love it allll, ima be a welder for a living..

tig is also used for thin materials... not just softer...
