Default Welding Stainless

I am wanting to cut, gut and shorten the factory mufflers on my '08 VFR. I'm pretty sure I can do the cut and gut but can't weld stainless without adding gas to my Mig and hate to spend the money for this one job. If there is someone near Newark that feels comfortable welding thin stainless, drop me a PM. Thanks, Mike

I have one suggestion. Take it to someone with a TIG machine and use 309 stainless filler.

Yep, that's what I'm looking for. Was hoping someone here had one in their garage and knew how to use it.

I know who but he swears he sold all of his equip because people kept asking him to weld things after he retired.
