Here is what I did for a guy who doesn't have money but put a hole in his bucket. The floor is very thin so I just put a 1/4" plate over the top of what was there. This thing was repaired before by someone who had no clue. They actually put a floor in it & welded it to the bottom of the edge behind the shanks so the step from the edge to floor was on the inside. You can see the wear bars are worn through plus the shape of the bucket is all wrong.

I hate doing stuff like this but again either I do it or someone else does. Welded fully around plus a few plug welds. I know it won't last long in heavy use but he's hoping to get some better work & have me rebuild it in the future.
