I'm planning on doing a diamond plate style body. Although I am open to other options. I just like the general look of diamond plate.
Some of the guys at my work stick weld and they make my MIG look like a hunk of junk. And I've gotten pretty good. I've had a few compliments.

|Redsand||Weld a dot just hot enough to weld the pieces together, then move down a few inches, and do it again, keep doing it till its completely welded|

Welding experience required for custom fab body?
What kind of welding experience should I get for custom building a body for my 06 TJ sport?
I have some "OK" Mig welding experience I just feel like that probably wont do the trick for a decently thick body that can take a good romping on before it needs some fixing.
