Pix of Aluminum weldment by MIG

Anyone know of a site that has pictures of a weld by a MIG gun?
Need to know what a good weld looks like so I can strive for that when my
gun comes in. I know what a TIG aluminum weld looks like.
Thanks

Go look at welded aluminum boat to see MIG welds.

On my trailer project I did 68 linear feet of 6061T6 1/8" diamond plate for the fenders. The machine was a SP125+.
The welding was quite difficult with that machine, but after some practice, the results were good.

There are a bunch of other photos of the trailer I welded up on that site, but the 019 is the best shot of aluminum MIG welding.

Thanks, Duncan and Frank.
Frank, to me, those welds look good. Are they AFTER practicing with the small machine or before?

How much does diamond plate like that cost per sheet approximately? Why is it so shiny, did you polish it out?

Okay, Frank. Thanks for the input.
I will be using a Millermatic 200 with a Spoolmatic 1 gun.
I need to get some tips for the gun as all it came with was an .062 tip.
It will be interesting to see how that diamond plate lasts with its high-polish. It sure is pretty.
I just hope I can do as well as you after some practice.
