So, I've got the piece welded in pretty good. Looks like it'll be pretty solid. I drilled some holes around the area where spot welds used to be. I did 1/2 inch holes on the inside, since I wouldn't be able to run a bead on the edge of the rail, due to the things in the way. I drilled 1/4 inch holes on the other side, and ran a few beads down the side of the rail. Also, I drilled 3/8 inch holes in the side of the rail itself, to weld to the metal that is still existing. I had help massaging the metal with a torch and hammer so that everything was tight against the existing metal. I also ran a bead at the top of the rail where it met with the good metal. After that I ground everything even. All that is really left is to paint, seal, and maybe put some undercoating up there. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pictures, its all I had today. My camera is broke, I've been borrowing.
