Re: 69 Top Dash panel
I have zero experience with welding or body work until I replaced my rusted dash. Not real hard, just take your time and practice, practice, practice welding first if you want to do it yourself. Or you could remove it, get it all good and let a pro weld it. Take lots of pictures and measurements with old dash still on. My dash was really bad, sections totally rusted away with nice size holes but the metal underneath was actually fine, just surface rust, go figure...Be careful drilling out old spot welds, don't want to leave a hole but if you do you can fill it with the welder. They make special bits for that.
I would think if you tried to patch it you would see the work but again, I am no body guy. I guess with a steady hand you could grind the welds down to match the rest of the dash. They do it all the time on other body panels but think they use filler also to hide any imperfections?
And if you haven't already, check your floor boards. Leaky windshield means standing water on floor.
