Hi guys ... just looking for some confirmation. The issue is plug welding 50 year old sheet metal to new panels. From what I've learned online, the best method is to drill the holes in the new metal, assuming same thickness. For mismatched thickness situations, drill the holes in the thicker metal. Correct? Thanks
Correct. What this does is to keep the heat of the heavier material otherwise the thin metal would potentially burn back into a much bigger hole than needed in turn creating a mess to clean up.
