Is it shrunk or stretched? Now what?

On my 62 galaxie restoration while i was working on the front end my partner was mig welding a 24"x 4" patch on the lower rear qtr. It seemed like he was done in no time he said he tacked it in but as i checked 4" above the weld seam there was an oilcan about 5'' wide by 3-4' high.I say its shrunk he says its stretched and we have to hammer on dolly on the weld seam***?THe weld seam is rock hard and it is level could the heat from weldinghave shrunk an area above the weld seam?Sorry for the long post .What do i do now? thanks mike
