I couldn't find a thread for a spotlight delete or weld, but is it worth welding or just get 2 new front doors? What do you guys suggest?

I went to my local sheet metal fabricator. They welded in a single piece of metal which was the thickness of the folded metal cutout. They did it during my lunch hour and they did a great job. I only used minimal bondo. Charge-$65. The local GM paint and body shop wanted $600. They said it would take about 8 hours of labor to do it. That was 4 years ago and it's still looking good. You have to look close to see it was ever done, and that was with me painting just the window frame.

I'm just going to cut out 2 pieces of metal to fit it and have my buddy weld it, but what am I going to do with my paint after?
