I blasted a door that is going on my car and came across some small holes in the front corner near where the door panel screws to the door and where the weatherstrip is in that area. It isn't bad enough to warrant cutting the area out and welding in a new piece but it can't be left as is. Its been blasted, picked at and stripped. The metal is nice and strong around the holes. Is there a epoxy or something that can be used to fill the holes? The door is absolutely perfect except for this area and would like to keep it as is rather than do some cutting and welding. If I have to I have to but I don't think its that bad and would rather fix whats there. I could probably weld a couple shut but there are a couple that I would rather just fill if there was something good to use. Any ideas? Thanks!

mig weld it would be the best thing to do.

mig welding is what I would do also. I just got done welding up the holes in 'RS' doors and no problems. Just remember to treat the welds from the inside.

I was afraid you guys were going to tell me that. I don't know why I wanted to shy away from welding but I guess you guys are right. Now that I hear a couple other people to tell me to do so it just makes more sense to weld. I guess I was looking for the easy answer but welding is the easy answer and its metal to boot. So be it, I'll break out the welder and do it. I guess I just needed a nudge. Thanks guys!
