Couldn't resist messing with it more. While shaving it I broke this little clip. 

After some practice it's fixed. Not pretty but fixed.

Here's where I'm relocating it.

Tacked in.

After welding all around it. I also found a discarded cut off zip tie. That plastic melted quicky so I used it as filler.

This is what not to do. This was a small hole so instead of cutting a plug to fit I decided to build up the inside using melted plastic. As you can see the edges failed.

So I went around the edges melting them together. Also filled more in the middle.

Now ground down I have pinholes to fill but you can't see the edge's outline anymore so it's melted together.

Maybe turn up your argon a touch to help with that porosity.

Sorry my granddad didn't teach me cool plastic welding like back filling with nitrogen but I wonder if I can touch it with my torch and fill those now.

We decided to try what I'm calling the Brownstone trick.  Hard to take a picture while doing it but here's the results.

Here's a simulation of what I did.

So you're basically free-basing on your intake manifold.  I approve.

No I'm told that I'm better off sticking to this one.  Translated that means Patrick told me to stop being a pansy and finish it.  Well but nicer.
