fact is it doesnt matter how thick the bottom is if the sides are still stock size. welding a plate simply puts that stress on other parts of the pan which are just as thin. bottom could be a thousand feet of solid aluminum and it means nothing, the sides/back will take that force and blow out just as easy. we are well aware welding an oil pan is common. its just not useful.
