You can get a" zinc rich" weld through primer(spray bomb) .Then drill the flange on one side with about 5/16 holes to separate the old parts through the existing spot welds .You then fill the holes with weld to attach to the new part.I know it as plug welding.It looks like spot welds when done well. Body shops use the technique to replace individual members in a unitbody all the time. Apply undercoating and your pan can look as new.It looks much more correct than a full bead of weld if the parts were spot welded originally.
