If you plan on chroming that bumper (I think you mentioned that) finishing off welds down in the corner like that is going to be VERY difficult, like darn near impossible. Butt welding a bumper like that and grinding it flat and prepping for chrome, easy as pie. But something like that would be very difficult to finish off straight and uniform. Even the upper parts that bolt together will be difficult to finish off likely requiring a few passes to fill up the V. Simply butt welding would be much easier.
