Ok so, I changed to AC and bumped the amps to 65 or so. There is still a little porosity but not as bad as it was before. Still sticking a lot whic I think is indicative of low amps but I don’t eat to burn through. I appreciate all your help. I will post a pic of the final product.

Apologies for the numerous grammatical errors. Using my thumbs on my phone and didn’t see them for correcting.
