      Nice to see that DOT does catch this kinda thing.

      Good for you, Nice to see work come to a guy when things are slow or times are tough. I know i have been slow the last week or so, very cold where I am so hopefully guys will be breaking stuff ! Best of luck to you on the repair, post some pics when you get it finished.
      I have a welding addiction

      ...the only stupid question is the one you didn't ask

        If you haven't fixed this yet (and I know this is a late suggestion) I would call that number of the company and see if you can find out what steel they are using so you can match filler metal. Probably A36,,,,but you never know and it would definitely help with the liability question. Good luck with the project.

          Where the gusset is needed the most there almost isn't any.
