    I looked at all that - in the finish I just welded a lug on. Did it to my cromo frame and my Spec FSR ali as well. The cromo is fine. Theoretically the welding of 6000 series ali requires tempering again. for sure the weld area is less tempered but I have seen no effect at all. I also welded a crack in the rear arm and its also fine. Its pretty easy to do - I just clamped a spacer off the disk then clamped the lug to that so it was perpendicular to the frame and welded it. I really dont care about doing this sort of thing - if your frame is a top expensive one then dont as its probably going to make it impossible to sell.
