    I would get a machine that can do both, IMO true gas MIG produces a better and cleaner weld than flux core. I had a Lincoln 120 from Home Depot as my first machine and it did flux core and gas. I much preferred the gas welds over the flux core, but there’s lots more qualified people on this thread who can answer for me.

    I don’t think VT needs all that... I literally just sent them the application, a California Bill of Sale from the guy I bought it from along with the paperwork for the NADA valuation and that was it.

    This is true, but if you don't mind spending 3 extra minutes cleaning each weld flux core is fine

    That doesn't do anything, how to prevent shit from getting fried is by putting the ground clamp right next to the weld so power flows through as little of the truck as possible

    That and making sure the ground is as unobstructed as possible so electrons don't make a way to the weld from the ground clamp

    In theory it would be next to impossible to fuck something up since every sensitive componant is pretty well isolated

    No exhaust shop disconnects the battery before welding, I don't either, never had a problem

    What's your definition of a better weld?

    I’ve just had better experience with it, it makes less spatter and slag in my experience. Nothing wrong with flux core, I just like gas welds better.

    I keep forgetting to call safelite and ask if they will replace my windshield with the OEM one that has an extra layer

    Go to your local metal supplier and ask to buy their scraps. They always cut the ends off or dented prices, when I do they just give me whatever is in their bin for free. It’s good to practice on without wasting good steel

    Has anyone ever installed a passenger airbag in an older model (95-97)?
