Welds partially completed
Your work should look something like this. Notice the small spot welds.
Keep welding these small spots along the cut line in an alternating pattern
until they meet in a single weld. Remember, this is a double-wall area and is actually the inside of the trunk so this joint must be water tight.
(Note: Before you finish your car be sure to treat this seam
inside the trunk with a professional quality seam sealer.)
The welds along the fender line seam do not need to meet.
The 1-1/2 inch interval weld-through 3/16 holes are sufficiently spaced.
Fender line seam
The same area after the welds have been completed and the area media-blasted clean.
Only a light coat of Metal-2-Metal filler will be needed to smooth out the area.
