Spot welders are really useful on the Mini main thing is the metal needs to be spotless to get a could current flow. MIG is much more forgiving this respect. Does mean outer panels look factory when spot welded on.

Its mainly for the scuttle and cill i like it to look factory there like endafs shells it welds 2 mm plate though not rusty it wasnt back to shiny steel just as it came but that was jusw to test it worked on 1.2mm it was great so for my needs its fine and has loads of arms and even a set at 18inches long
