I went out and purchase a wire feed MIG welder and finished the job with no more burn through although I now have holes that need to be repaired. Any ideas on how to best repair this? I have about 6 - 8 holes that range between 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch. I canít really cut the whole thing out and replace it as it is located at the front of the floor pan where it connects to the fire wall.

Any input would be appreciated.
