80/20 helium/argon if you are using a/c

preheat to around 200f

use as small a tig cup as will allow good gas shielding and use as little gas flow as will allow for good shielding.

you are definitely going to need a water cooled torch. and probably a 5/32 tungsten ceriated or lanthanated.

do you have a spool gun? cause thats a lot of welding.
