The in the factory I think the inner wing and A-pillar/panel would have been welded together before the internal plate with the check strap mount that joins the A-pillar and inner wing was welded on.

Here is a pic of where mine is spotwelded, I found fitting outers then flitch panel made access to this ok with spot welder, I also removed the inner a post panel to gain access as I was also replacing that
on passenger side the flitch was wrong shape so I had to let some metal in so it could be spot welded as can be seen on this pic
then the inner a panel I had to plug weld as couldn’t gain access with the spot welder
welds were then ground flush before fitting wings etc.
hope this helps out a bit
if you want to spot weld inner a panels you would have to fit them to inner wing prior to fitting this to the car and I thought alignment would be difficult without a jig of some sort so this was best way I could manage it. The inner a panel plug welds are not noticeable whereas the outer a panel to inner wing ones are when the door is opened. Hope that makes sense.

DAZ1968. Thank you very much for the response. I figured but my panel does not fit the curve either. The pictures helped out immensely.
