I first made a template from cardboard and than transferred it to steel. Forming the replacement bits was largely a matter of trial and error with a hammer and wooden blocks. The crossmember is slightly angled towards the front of the frame, so the replacement bits left and right are mirrored. I cleaned the inside of the crossmember as much as possible, treated it ith Fertan and coated it in primer, before welding the new bits in.
