No ive never welded on a car before (just welded a little on a bench)

Do you need to disconnect the battery before welding on the car?? I know to get some good spark protection if your in a dangerous area (around the gas tank, upholstery, magnesium engine with oil around it) but not sure if the welder will fry your electronics (grounding to the cage of course)..

thanks-
-Brett
