removed perches: did I mess it up. Ford 8.8

Hello,

I had to remove the perches from the Ford 8.8 rear end I'm putting in my '37 Chevrolet. I've never done this before and tried to be as careful as I could but I still got into the axle tubes.

Does this look like I cut too far into the tubes? Do I need to go back and reweld to fill in these holes and grind it back smooth?







Did I cut these perches too much, or can I reuse them. They do still have plenty of material to sit correctly on the axle.





Thanks,
Brandon
