    just cut out the rust and replace with the pabela available.. they are only spot welded on, so get syour self a spot weld remover and a couple of slitting discs and away ya go!

    just take a measurement from a datum your not going to change or alter for the hole for the rear hanger so you can make sure it goes back in excatly the same place.
