    Yep, I'll second that.
    Tig is very slow to weld compared to mig, so the price difference is based on time taken.
    You could do half & half, tig where it shows, mig for the rest?

    purely cosmetics but the difference is really the time taken. TIG is considered a better weld by the masses, mainly because it looks nicer than a MIG weld but structurally for a road car built from mild steel either is acceptable. Steves got plenty of build up pics and threads showing his workmanship, so do you're research, get a few comparible quotes and make your own mind up.

    I called steve lang as he is fairly close by and went to see him yesterday.
    When I arrived I saw a gorgous sparkly roadster on his drive, had a look and it's an amazing car, I thought a good sign, anyway wevhad a chat and he can do my frame in 3 weeks time, I got 2 prices and the diference was the welding he offered to either tig weld or mig weld he explained the 2 types and the difference was 200 pounds, do you think it's worth spending the extra money to have it tig welded ???
