WELDING

No matter whether you arc or mig welding when doing extensive welding always spot or stitch it first, that way if you see an error when it's all in place it'll be easier to cut out to have another try, and less likely to cause damage. also doing it this way reduces the amount of heat warp you get.

It's also worth pointing out if your welding stuff from abut an 1/8th thick up preheat the weld area as you get a much better smoother weld

And, when angle grinding, make sure you cover all glass as the metal sparks melt the glass leaving spots that wont polish out! I know - been there done that, ended up changing window and rubber seals!!

And if you do happen to get a "couple" of sparks on your glass, a new shiney 2pence piece (an old one will do the job if you are hard up!!lol) lay flat on the glass and vigorously rubbed over will take most of the imbedded metal fragments out of the glass, preventing thoes little rust spots!!!
This isnt 100% but worked for me in the past
