Not the place you want a rookie or less experienced welder doing the welding, very easy to warp it and ruin it.
X2 couldn't agree more Eric. I had a buddy that had his challenger hood repaired and it looked good for a year or so and that's being nice because really you could notice where it was repaired at if you looked and didn't have to look hard either. There are some people out there that can do this and it will really look good but it might cost a bit.
