If the broken welds are causing the rattle, just get it re-tacked, shouldn't cost much.

Put a line of silicon between the frame and bootlid. That'll stop the rattles. Make sure it's the right type of silicon and can be used on metal. The factory "welds" as you have put them is just some expanding foam crap that comes off if there's even a hint of bass.
