I don't do much thinner than about 14 Gau, but the last of that I did I used 3/32" 6011.
I was unaware that 7024 was considered to be a sheet metal rod. New one on me.
Same thing with 1/16" 6010/6011. Ya learn something every day

Don't know if the info in this Lincoln guide would be helpful or "overload". It does have some info on thickness, rod size, number of passes, position and so forth. It might be a little too specific, so as to optimize a particular welding scenario.
