I took off the side molding on a 71 VW, years ago. I dented in the holes so they were dimples, then filled with body filler and sanded smooth. Didn't have to worry about the edge of the holes since they were below the finished surface. Probably the cheapest solution, not necessarily the best.

You are talking about removing the chrome from the rear of the car right? You are asking how to fill the holes in the quarter extension, not removing the quarter panel trim piece on the side of the car? If so, I think your right, JB Weld is probably your best bet. That's what they use on the 65/66 headlight bucket repair kit.

Now, in my opinion, I would leave it on, it really makes the taillight panel stand out, which is a really cool part of the design of the car.

Tig welding is the right way to do it. If you don't have time to do it right, where are you gonna find time to do it over.

Ya get a hold of him. I needed to take a certification test one time, I told them I'd bring some scrap steel for them if they let me do a little practice. Worked out for both of us.

Travis, do a google search for it. Seems like the danger is in getting it too hot. Here's a link to a brand of welding rod that I saw.

Getting it to hot is the reason it needs welded with TIG.

Right, but my warning to Travis was that even with TIG it can get too hot.

Agreed, unless the welder is experienced, jb weld might be the best option.

If you go JB, dimple them so you're not sanding the edge of the holes.

Hmmm my auto teacher is pretty good at welding but he sad the tig welder is broke. Soo either i have to use those rods or jb weld. That starter kit is interesting but its kinda hard to justify 60$ for 6 little holes haha i might just have to bite the bullet on this one

You might give oxygen/acetylene torch with cold rolled steel (coat hanger) a try. Worth a shot, not sure it will hold tho.
