Default Welding Vertices - Still Pulling Apart?

Hello folks,

I have two panels for a vehicle which I've tried to meld into one, but it has left a crease, even though the vertices are all welded... well, all apart from two. I keep welding them, but when I check to see whether they're as one by using subdivision, these two little blighters pull apart. All of the others which I welded now remain as one.

I'm hoping to find a workaround for the crease by taking the panels into Poser and using the morphing brush to smooth it, but the mesh must be as one. Can anyone advise, please? Better still, would anyone be able to fix this for me, please, as I've been trying to fix it for ages. It's a teeny-tiny model which hardly registers in file size.

The image shows the area in question circled in red, with the areas shown with green having to remain untouched, so they still match with the rest of the vehicle.

I don't have a lot of hair left, lol! Thanks folks.

Here is the .ac file. If anyone could be so awesome as to smooth this ghastly crease out for me, I would be immensely grateful. Thank you.

There are two separate objects and you can't share vertices between objects.

Select the objects then menu Object->Merge to create a single object. Then you can weld vertices; or use Vertex->Snap-together-by-distance - with a carefully chosen distance, followed by an Object->Optimize to remove the duplicate vertices.

Thank you for your help. I tried that but it still pulls apart. Could someone take a look and see what's wrong, please?

This is the result of:

Merging both objects, selecting vertices along the seam, Vertice->Snap-together-by-distance with value of 0.0001, Object->Optimize vertices.

I then increased the crease angle of the object via Tools->object-property-editor

That looks cool, thank you very much! Could you export it as an .obj please? It won't open in my AC3D.
