    Any way to weld the thin metal on tractors and attachments?

    Use a copper backing plate (because mig weld will not stick to it) and .025 solid wire with 75-25% gas. Short 3/4" - 1" welds spaced 3/4 - 1" apart and then fill in between, should not burn through. I've been doing this on my '65 Chevy Malibu body panels, it's been working well for me.
