    Gas Welding Birmabright

Is it possible to gas weld the Birmabright, the proprietary alloy used in  Land Rover bodies.  This alloy is 17% magnesium,  mainly Aluminum, with  traces of other elements.  What welding rod should be used to gas weld this material.  Is a victor 000 tip small enough to weld this .040 thick  material?

Thank You
Rich

Rich,

I have done a lot of them. And Brit motorcycles. And have gotten perfect color match on polished parts.

Use 5356 rod, and a Victor "0" tip. What experience do you have? as just plunging in can be very entertaining for spectators.
