36 Ford Dash

I want to change the size and number of gauges on a 36 Ford Coupe Dash.

Can I merely cut and weld in the existing holes and re-cut for the new ones or is there a better way than metal fill?

I'm not a seasoned welder, but it seems that cutting a couple of circles and laying a series of tack weld would not be that difficult. Do I need to be concerned about metal shrinkage?

I know there are gauge clusters available that cover the old holes, but I prefer to install direct to the old dash once filled in...
