Considering the time crunch your idea is probably the best. Maybe wire wheel it before closing the gap.

I dont think I would remove any material by grinding, its already thin and grinding is just extra work. I would wire wheel it, push the piece into place, stand it on one end and run a down pass with a mig, both sides.
Prolly do that in less than an hour.. if you get inclusions its no biggee, its already a shit bucket...

Smokin has the best idea for a long term repair....
