Nice job Allan. Don't beat yourself up for doing a butt weld as opposed to a lap weld. If you can successfully tackle doing a butt weld, you have produced a joint that is the nearest to making your repair undetectable if you can dress the back side of the joint (leaving total area at material thickness). Flange welds may appear "stronger" but they can attract moisture between the metal and "bubble" later on. Great job!
