Yeah, my grinding always leads to more welding, but have gotten much better at both cutting back to thicker metal and getting the patch to lay on a flat plane with the surrounding metal. Both lead to less blow through and grinding holes. Also getting better at avoiding warping the surrounding metal.

I am pretty persistent...if I can remain patient at the same time, it works better!

Thanks for the kind words, tips and commiseration. I like the creative part but will never be an artist.
