Best way to weld sheet metal.?

1 answer Reward0 Question has Expired

I need to know the best way to weld sheet metal. I have an old project car that i'm currently modifying, i have a friend who's a welder and he did all the frame and structural welding. but i now i'm onto the cosmetic stuff and need to buy some equipment. I don't have alot of welding experiance but I have spent a little bit of time welding aluminum(tig) and did some steel welding with a mig welder. The problem i had with the mig welder is that it got too hot and distorted like crazy. i was wondering if anyone knew of a better method of welding that wasn't too expensive to get into so i can finally get my benz on the road. thanks.
what kind of welder would be best? like oxy or mig or what? im welding steel.

    When you weld sheet metal, you have to stitch weld it to avoid warpage. Weld a small line (inch or so) and then go weld somewhere completely different. When the first area cools, you can come back and add another stitch.’’
