Hi all. I am in the process of replacing the panel between the rear window and the trunk lid on my 1970 Monte Carlo. I have a repo panel that is ready to be welded in but I do not have access to a spot welder. I am thinking of drilling holes in the new panel in areas that would not be visible, and weling the inside of the holes to the panel below.

But on the part were the repo panel meets the quarter panel, were it folds down and the spot welds are inside the trunk (the seams that are filled with lead from the factory), I am thinking of welding the seam flush from the top. The finished look would have no visible seam.

Any thoughts on these methods would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Will welding over brass have the same effect as welding over lead?

Also, do I prime/paint the mating surfaces of the metal being "spot welded" together, or do I just leave them as bare metal?

Thanks for all the help.
