i've personally done this and it is not unsafe.. well as far as i have done it... i even added heat externally with a torch to pop out some kinks. the only hard part was making clean strong welds... i acchived this two different ways first by tourch welding the two pieces together without any rod, just overlaping the 22guadge sheet metal and evenly melting them together, then when i put it on and found leaks i just added rod and patched as flat as I could because thick welds led to uneven expanding... the next one I made was useing a MIG with the wire speed turned way down so I could make deep flat welds.. then patched with the tourch like before... works great, and all in one afternoon. woo
