Bigger is always better. You can't use amps you didn't buy. A 125 versus a 140 is pretty straight forward. Are you planning to use 75/25 or pure CO2?

Pure CO2 works in a pinch, but you really have to bury the nozzle deep in the puddle to get good penetration.

[I can't believe I'm posting that. It may become my new signature.]

The guy called me back today and accepted the $550. Going to pick it up tomorrow after work. Time to start calling steel suppliers! I got one quote of $120 for 2 x 20' sections of 2"x2"x1/8" square mild steel tubing. Does this sound pretty reasonable?

I havent bought any steel in a while, don't be afraid to shop around! Most places will gladly "chop to size" to make it fit on your vehicle.
