[quote name='Rallywagon']Looks like an awesome project![QUOTE]


[quote]1. Does the Castrol Super Clean cut the tar like junk used under the carpets?[/quote]
I don't know? never tried since its under the carpet. on my Toyota I can usually peel or chip that crap away. also a wire wheel might get it off

[quote]2. What type of welding are you doing on your auto sheet metal projects, and can you give any hints...TIG, MIG, pulsing?[/quote]
I haven't welded on a Subie YET, But on my Toyotas I've done way too much of it. I just a 110 MIG with 75/25 Argon/CO2 Mix with .023 mild steel wire. With my Linclon its on B-3 works pretty good. Teh settings are from A-D and 0-10 if that helps. Then you just do a bunch of spot weld over lapping each other. and don't stay in one place for too long. Say 1" at a time and then skip 4" down the panel. The keey is going nice and slow.

[quote]3. What kind of welding rod seems to work well with Japanese auto sheet metal (Subaru if you have gotten that far) in your experience?[/quote]
See above....
