i have a mig welder and love it. ive used sticks many of times as well. i prefer a mig over a stick becuase there is no slag after the weld to be chipped off. also it is easier to use a mig over a stick, esp in ur case where there might be alot of tack welding to be done.
but a mig will cost u more money along with the gas that u will have to refill eventually. i have the best lincoln that home depot and lowes sells, forget the model number, and it has worked great for me, didnt cost too much and is small so it doesnt take up too much space, ive used millers many of times and are probably a better welder but cost alot more for one of there full size setups.
