Welder

Does anyone have any recommendations of a reputable shop in the Dallas/Fort Worth area that would take on a small job of welding up some mirror holes on my door?

Thanks in advance!

Mighty big holes to plug weld...easier to cut out that section as a rectangle and replace with one solid piece...that's what I would do if it was my door, then you have a nice clean/new piece to re-drill for whatever mirror you want.

Call up any of the local airports and see if they have a welder on staff there. They would be outfitted to weld very thin materials with TIG.

Ask at the local steamfitters union hall (United association) .
They will have a welding school local where they train the members to tig cds , inox , chrome etc. and a LOT of them are car guys that happen to rent project workshops etc.

But To be honest , that is a simple job .
Any decent body guy can do it correctly .
I’m talking a body guy , not a bondo guy though .
I can tell you how to do it yourself if you have the tools ....
