Funny you should mention this.  I just had some of the same kind of work
done on my TQC.  There's a shop in Washington State that specializes in
this type of repair.  They heliarc weld some aluminum blobs over the
damaged area and then re-machine the welds.  They say that when they're
done, you can't tell it's ever been worked on.  I haven't got my head
back yet, but when I do I'll let you know how it turned out along with a
phone number (it's at home, sorry).
