Ok forgive me if this has been posted before but i am curious about mig welding panel seams with the silicon bronze mig wire. I just now found out they make it for the mig. and i know people are already doing it with a tig. Has anybody tried this? I am looking for a solid way to seal up the seams as i replace panels to avoid any "cracking" of the paint or filler. I saw seams sealed this way on a build recently and it is beautiful and seems to be the perfect way to finish off a panel. i did find out that if you do use this wire in a tig to use a slightly oversized tip because the wire can bind up. Other than that it should work right?
Exactly. I read that too. Im just wondering if anybody has tried it before i gamble money and time on a spool. I hate the idea of welding on new panels and not having them sealed up very well. Just filling them with filler just doesnt seem good enough. I have thought of just leading them but you can also get cracks with lead. I can't afford a tig which is how i have seen them do it. I guess the main issue will be if it sticks or not.
