+1, but was a good start. I'll bet you didn't want any of that original paint ground down/burned up, but it's gotta be done sometime. Sorry, I feel for you and I have been there too.
stick welded and not very pretty but has taken the vibration etc for a couple of years now without breaking.
hammer & dolly time then a little fiberglass cosmetic help, very little
done enough for me and was time to change some things on that silly headset
edit: aw geez , I already posted some of this on Pg1, as well as this prediction:

You'll want a full weld to do it right and not have it crack before long. Find an autobody shop w/ somebody experienced in welding body panels. This should be easy to get a good job. Wet rags to protect the paint maybe, but this will burn it back a little. No worries paintwise, it would add to its charming personality Grind, polish and clearcoat, maybe w/ some blue tint.
