The cats at heights Welding in Houston were great. I worked with a guy named Daryl who was aces.
Turns out the area had been repaired before. Regerttably it was welded with the crack offset and to make right they used a ton of bondo.
Required more filling, feathering, and grinding than expected and a tack on the back. Still needs some dolly and hammer work to clear the original dent that caused the crack, but we are on the way now.
