If we're talking safety, personally, I'd leave it alone. Even if the stock welds have weakened over the years, the deformation of the front end will act as a crumple zone. Modern cars are designed to absord energy rather than have it transmitted to the cabin. If you seam weld the engine bay area, you're doing just the opposite. Unless the entire cabin area is also seam welded, the cabin will be the weakest area and the first to deform in an accident.
