I'll probably try tapping first. The stud welder works great for shrinking by putting a concentrated, controlled, and consistent spot of heat on a panel, but I don't have an actual shrinking tip for it, I just use it without a stud in place. The problem is it needs bare metal for the entire contact surface.

I did find this picture of the hood after it was blocked post-epoxy.
