Thanks Steve, I've taken a lot of notes from this thread, and appreciate the expertise!!

Summer's are very short in NE, so I can't wait for the dealer and MC to make a decision (then wait for the part). If I can get the part from him that would be a major bonus in my eyes, but I'll still have the welding done asap if the guy can do it and seems like he know's what's he's doing. I understand by having the repair done I'll potentially risk losing out on a potentially free part from MC. Hopefully I'll know more in the AM. Thanks again and good nite, I'm out...
