Check for possible burnt wires from the welding. I would also clean and tighten the negative battery connection on the frame and motor. Sounds like you might have a loose/dirty connection there. And the welding could have caused an arc at the connection point.

Check behind the radio also, could have a wire that took some time to rub through. The daytime running light wires run behind the radio on the 90s grand am.
