MIG WELDER?

Hi All. Talking to a mate earlier today about my HG Van and rust repairs. He suggested I buy a Mig and all the necessary patch panels and have a play myself..... Any suggestions as to what brand, model or amps? I prefer to buy quality.
Thanks.

Bwahaha

Ol crackpot Rosco smarter than you [Naughty Pottyword]s thought. Toyota must have taken his idea and run with it.
Must be him an his ideas behind it, cause even Toyota give about as much thought as he did with the availability of hydrogen.

Starter Solenoid wire broken

Guys
I have a kit to replace the cap and contacts as the old one was smashed. I have found the wire coming from the motor broken (the thicker of the twin wires)and there isn't much poking out...probably only 6mm or so. Can this be fixed? I've tried soldering but it slips off as it's a solid copper wire. Any tricks of the trade for this? Photo attached, it snapped at he first bend.

304 flywheel versus 308

Hi guys.

I've pulled a vt 304 roller out to put in my wb. It's a manual set up.I'm wondering if the flywheels are the same. I'm planning on putting my supra set up onto the 304. My old motor was a turbo pattern so that parts okay. Plus i have the manual ecu.

Peter Brock TV show

Hi all, just watching the V8's at Townsville on TV or should I say the add fest. Anyway there have been numerous add's for the upcoming Peter Brock story. I'm in two minds about this, as a Brock fan I'm NOT really interested in someone's view of his private life and I'm not sure how factual the racing part of the series will be. On the other hand as a Brock fan I'm interested. One thing that worries me already is in the add they show a picture of Brockies LJ XU1 [so far so good] but it has a V8 soundtrack of the exhaust noise, so that's what I mean about it being accurate.

pee wee 50's

my little boy is 2 1/2 years old and like his daddy was, mad about anything with an engine.

i grew up on a farm and the year i turned 5 i got a pw50 for christmas. my then 3 1/2 year old brother figured out how to ride it when i went in for a drink and eventually he got one as well. the best fun as kids chasing each other, time trials and such.

Washing engine bay

Wanting to give the engine bay a good clean and thought the car wash would be the best place to do so. Anyone have any preferred ways they do it? Anything in particular to cover and best to keep engine running or shut off?

Thanks in advance

Probably more hump day than EH because of what it's going in.
It would be fun in the EH, or any early Holden.
