Edit: forgot to say...BIG BIG thanks to the op. The diy simplified the process for me greatly and kept me from having to look for my bentley manual.

Short answer: Find an experienced welder/fabricator that you trust, have them look at your car and ask them.

In my circumstance it was fine, I've done a lot of metal work back in high school and my buddy that did the work for me welds for a living, so we knew that it would be fine to just weld my crack before reinforcing.
