that will work just fine

be sure to use all metal or fiberglass filler over the seam
I agree. I like to apply resin filler directly on the joint then grind it flush before applying epoxy primer. Then plastic filler over epoxy primer. The resin seals any pinholes in the joint from getting moisture through from the backside. Once moisture gets to regular plastic filler it gets soaked up and the paint bubbles. I used this method with welded joints 9 years ago on my SS and no problems yet.
