I was trying to get the welded C-perches off the axle tubes of my early Bronco Dana 44. Note that I'm not talking about the full-size version with cast perches. Anyway, the right side came off with no problems. However, I messed up on the left side while grinding the weld. Because it can be hard to judge where the C-perch ends and the axle-tube begins, I accidently grinded a little too far into the axle tube. The perches came off, but I am left with a section on the axle-tube roughly 1"x3", that is probably about half it's original thickness. If I lay down a few weld-beads over the thin section, and then grind it back down, can this be considered strong enough???
