Red face Welded Front Clilp

My 35 tudor ford sedan has a nova front clip grafted on. When I pulled the body off, I found that it is not perpendicular with the body. Its about one inch short on one side. I guess that's what I get for buying the shell someone else already botched up. The old ford frame is slid in side the nova neatly and welded on the exposed edge. I'm thinking I can either grind off the old weld or get someone who is much better with a torch than me to take away most of the old weld. If i can seperate the two, I can square the nova clip with the 35 frame and everything would be hunky dory. Anyone out there have any better suggestion or advice? I feel this is my only hope for saving the frame.
