When you apply high temperatures to metal, as in welding, you affect the atomic structure of the metal and can actually weaken the metal surrounding the weld. Although the weld itself is quite strong, the Heat Affected Area can be considerably weaker.

Just a little FYI
Since they will most likely MIG it, I don't see much chance of it deforming/weakening the metal around the weld to any real extent. I think he should be fine with anything other than rally racing the car.
