The same thing happened to my set of RG3 pipes about 6 or 7 years ago and I got it welded. Still looks great. I gave him the bracket for fitment/clearance when welding.

Been there buddy, I bought my 2005 F4 and it’s been the better part of a year bringing it up to date on everything and taking care of all the known problems they have. One good thing about mine was it only had 5k on it and one owner so it was not all that bad.

Yes, the cans are stainless
You need a TIG welder, 308 rod for the small hole, the rest is just a fusion weld
$15-$20

Old school....constant current machine
Lincoln 300/300, 375 amps on the big end, been running it for 43 years, needed 1 O-ring in the water solenoid
so far
Find yourself a drafting storage cabinet for rod storage this one is 38" long, perfect for rod storage
and shotgun barrels
Some extra rod......when they're selling it for $2 a pound you buy it!
Ti, Mg, Al, silicon bronze, Inconel, Monel, PH 17 all the same price
They didn't have steel or stainless rod though

Jason;
3 process welding machines make compromises......and usually aren't great at anything
TIG and stick use constant current
MIG machines use constant voltage

Look into an old transformer machine for TIG and stick, they're cheap and bullet proof and have MAJOR power
Yes, they're big and HEAVY......the good side, no fragile electronic bullshit
Here, you can buy the entire setup for $1,000-$1,400 machine, pedal, torch, bottle, regulator and water cooler
Plug and play
MIG the less electronics the more reliable, make sure it will use 25 lb spools
BUY TIP DIP AND ANTI SPATTER SPRAY, forget all the stupid tip scrapers
Get the biggest gas bottles you can......the charge for filling bottles is more than the gas
Use C-25 for MIG, not CO2 it's too messy
TIG, run Argon, buy a tank of Helium and wye the hoses together for thick aluminium, don't buy premixed
