Jesus H Christ Bernie, what the hell kind of engineering work did you do 
(or have you done) in the past ?

I've listened to just about every kind of I don't know what "DFIIIABE" and 
now it seems as though we've reached a peak here.  Is your primary and 
overwhelming purpose in life to save a $ (penny) ............ then why do 
you own a 200 TQ 20v ? - why not a Saturn or equivalent ?

God damn it, help the guy out and suggest a repair like a riveted and/or 
welded fix and be done with it !
