I have been seriously considering this welder. Makes thin metal much easier than the Lincoln 225 stick welder I am using now.

You certainly want a wire feed. Lincoln is usually considered top of the line. I have a Century gas-less wire-feed and have spun 50+ lbs. of wire through it with fairly good results. I built my baja with it. It will weld material from sheet metal thickness to 3/16". If you have the funds, MIG is certainly the way to go, though. Flux core wire makes a slag mess like stick, but mine plugs into a standard 120VAC outlet, and I've been pretty damn happy with it. I won't be buying another one any time soon.
