I ran into a similar problem when I built a new rear sill for my 71:

You can see where I blew through the semi-rusted QPs. Because they were thinner than the 16 Ga patch metal I had to tweak the heat to where it was enough to melt the new metal, but not blow through the QPs too much. Hindsight being 20/20, I should have replaced large sections of my QPs while I was at it. It is now starting to rust through the QPs where I welded to it.
