With a stick of dynamite maybe. That is beyond repair.

Back when I was in night school one of my classmates had an old Firebird with a door that no longer latched. The thing was a complete POS. He drove it into the truck mechanic's shop and welded a hasp on the door/rear quarter panel.

And in the eye of the hasp? He bent a 6010 welding rod in half and dropped it in.
