wow, that's a shock! those that fell apart must have been a guy that didn't know what he was doing! My grandfather had "Wong's Auto Body" since 1941, took over by my uncle, then died out from too much competition...
Didn't know it had to be mig or nothing...Weld13, if you know how to do it right, I can't see the insurance company complaining if they don't know! You might want to visit some body shops or ask/call up the votech teacher and ask him...I'm not late...

O/A on auto body
You can o/a on the outer body panels, it was the uni body and structural supports that could not be done with out a mig. DaveIf necessity is the Mother of Invention, I must be the Father of Desperation!

Just a thought make shure you look at what a local welding store gives you because someone we know went to a store bought what he thought was a aluiminum rod for o/a and then found out once he gave it to my brother and he found out the hard way it was for steelwelding...its awsome

Either way it will be worked out because know of a couple of people locally with migs and once you do a coulpe of favors and stuff they always give back in fact one complemented after I miged up something on his machine said it was mine to borrow if I ever needed it or anything else. My brother is also an expert on o/a welding don't know how he does it so well but I think I will start gettin some more practice on it so I can show him up on that cause he can't even use a mig very well. I have only done it about once and hes worked a whole summer job of o/a welding on aluminum and steel. The jeep would be an 80's model cj7 but am still looking for one in good shape at a decent pricewelding...its awsome
