You can weld panel tears or cracks etc, a smaller nozzle has to be used than for metal of a similar thickness and not for the faint hearted as the alloy melts easily so you could be in for a whole lot of fun.

You can weld the Land Rover chassis no bother with mig. or oxy acetylene because its mild steel, the body is different story i prefer to fit new panels they are quite cheap and easy to get a hold of

Oh! Thankyou for that. I honestly thought the Landrover body was steel. An old friend of mine, now sadly crossed the bar, bought what had been the Fire Tender for Anglesey Aluminium, which was based on a Landrover and I remember him telling me that it was aluminium bodied, but I thought he meant the "Fire engine" part!!
