I installed some 1/4 panels on my 1968 Mustang fastback and I plug welded the front seam inside of the door jamb. I did grind the welds down some and they are somewhat visible, but I am not sure if that seam should look totally smooth or should you see some hint of plug weld being there?

Not sure if I am explaining this correctly but could a few of you guys post pics of your door jamb area 1/4 seam so I can get a idea of how it is supposed to look?

I would really appreciate it and thanks.

It is a series of 12 barely visible spot welds, plus tack welds (may be brazing actually) at the corners.

Details are shown on page 63 of the 68 Weld and Sealant Assembly Manual. Note the tack welds are not shown in the manual, might be a running change or unique to San Jose.
