Excellent tech! One thing to make it slightly easier is to strip the donor sheet metal before you cut it. At least with the small pieces, easier then trying to hold down the piece from flying around when stripping it.

Also one thing to keep in mind, if you want to add gauges or switches to the dash, be aware of the spots you've patched up or it may be harder to have it flush mounted from the welding. So sometimes it maybe better to make the hole bigger on the dash then weld in a bigger piece back into the dash so the beads won't interfere with the new mounting instruments. Or if you want the entire dash smooth, it will be easier to cut off the entire dash instead of filling in dozens of smaller holes.
