Not sure what that lip is for, kickstarter-related perhaps (holder/stopper for the spring?)?
Anyway, pop the seal out, and the welder may want to weld it partially submerged in water to prevent if from warping - but a good welder will know, leave it to him.
Oh, yeah, someone has to finish the welded part up by milling it into shape, a Dremel springs to mind here.
Wrong end of the case Burpies....it's where the crank comes through and connects to the clutch basket...I think it's some sort of shield for oil ?.....got £80 refund on the deal so only paid £80 for both cases delivered so chuffed BRP smile

its the bit of case that the camchain goes around, so the chain doesnt grab the crankshaft if derailed

That's the bit that was bothering me: there's nothing they do that does not have a function, and a thing like this does cost a fair bit of effort/money to make/manufacture.
Further, I think it's not so much the case of 'not grabbing the crank' (as it runs on it there!) but more a shield to prevent too much oil being slung off the chain, some of it will 'get back' on it going up again.
