It's all localised, and seems away from the jacking points - so not on a load-bearing section at all.

A decent smart repairer would be anywhere up to 250, which has got to be cheaper than cutting away the existing one, buying & welding in a replacement, then painting it.

Less time off the road also - it could be done in a full day.


And if anyone should now that you should..
