I used fiber glass to delete my antenna and rear wiper. Down side is I cant weld. Wonder if I could get away with fiber glass on the holes.

Could you do mig? Doesn't need to be pretty.

Just put a brass backing like I said in the other post.

Just make sure you either go slow or use an air compressor with air gun to keep it cool as to not warp the area from welding.

Or, you could spot/tack weld up a square piece that's somewhat curved/formed, tack it up in 4 corners on the back side, then fiber over that for support. This can help to ensure no depression/sinking over time.

Kind of a neat picture...I took last year after cleaning out my garage...my red car had the bumps holes welded my mig, up close you can't tell, inside the door...looks like ass. I had taken them off before painting to make sure it come out great, 3 days before taking to body shop, I had them draped across back seat....they contoured to my seats and had horrible look...I still have them...but wouldn't get them painted... I like both ways don't notice either way...

Got the body of my CS cleaned while it was rebuilded after I´ve totalled the car last year. Sideguard gone as well as the rear wiper and all water spray nozzels. As a bonus the used fenders I´ve bought came from a US ST185 so they didn´t have the holes for the side indicators. All other holes were closed by welding.

Looks great. A buddy of mine ended up welding mine shut. Deleting these clears the way for a whole body line the guards covoered.
