I'd look at making it removable before you weld it in, it looks pretty much normal aside from having to cut your engine and decklid seals in half. That's what I did in my '66 when I had to do some rus ...

You could probably cut a vertical slit down by the gap and tweak it enough to close up the gap. Then just weld it in a few spots to keep the seam closed, and weld the slit you cut back up. Then grind ...
