If you plan to fit a period radio there is no need to weld in a plate. 
You can use an adapter to slide in the DIN aperture from the front, much 
easier that to fit a radio from behind the dashboard. The edges will be 
covered by the front plate of the radio or an extra cover to go with the 
adapter if the front plate is to small.
As I collect and sell period radio's, I have plenty of those adaptors 
lying about which you can have for postage costs only.
