Today I made sure all of the holes lined up and then drilled them bigger to screw in the small studs that I used earlier for the ring of light installation (I had lots of these small studs from the heatsink and didn't know a use for them before this).

I also drilled 8 big holes for the big screw underneath the heatsink.

In the second picture the weld right at the bottom is the best weld that I have done.
