Sounds like you have faith in your body guy, but keep in mind he likely has no where near the welding time and probably not the skills of a true welder. Someone that does 40hr/week at it. Big, big difference. Perhaps get 2 of them to repair t.
Most vehicles since the mid 80s have been unibody and is great for spot welds and light tig, but frames have movement where unibody doesn't and poor weld can't handle that.
I would get that car up on a hoist and spray degreaser with a weed sprayer under the front and then pressure clean it top and bottom. You can also use a small sewer jet nozzle with the pressure cleaner to do the inside of the front of the frame. Cleaner the better for welding.
Those cars were originally done with flux core and the guys were on piece work, not the greatest quality.

Search the C3 forums for the frame cracks. Lots of good info there.

And you guys were ragging on stick welds, well here you go, all position.

putting a cap on a piece of eight or ten inch pipe is different than joining 1-16th inch metal plate under a car. btw, a LOT of stop and starts on that weld.....couldn't get comfortable I guess?
