So I'm having to weld a patch panel in my rocker arm panel. It is going fine until I hit a thin place, where I have ground it too thin, and started blowing holes as shown in the attached photo. I would appreciate any advice on what to do.

Welding is a process of melting two base metals together adding a filler … mig, Tig …. Can easily melt the base metals causing holes….
Soldering is a process heating two metals to a particular temp….usually below their melting point…. No burning holes… Then adding a filler metal…. You might try soldering the opening closed. Granted the solder is softer than steel, it’s also not in a structural place…. Should work…. I find it works well…. Long ago they used molten lead …..
Look up Muggy Welding on the internet…
