What I do is use a Roper Whitney punch and make some small plugs-then I carefully drill the hole to the right size and weld the plugs in-if you are careful with your Welding, you can put less heat into the Door panel (less warping), then Hammer and Dolly the area back to normal (stretching)-by the way, where in Colorado are you?

Help a noob, welding
I've got no experiance welding ( but I did sleep at a Holliday Inn last night ) I've done the rest of my car and I want to tackle this.
The project is to eliminate the holes for the chrome trim on a door. I have a small O/A welder that I have a basic understanding of, I have a spare door I can practice on. What's the best way to do this, fill in the holes with weld material, cut out a small piece and weld it in.
How do I keep from warping the door
