I'm trying to learn what the repair cost for this might be before I respond to the seller. I'm of course checking with local yards today to get estimates. Has anyone had to deal with this and if so what did you do and what did that cost?

I doubt these were ever rebedded in all these years.


That may be why the PO used a portable toilet. I would guess the area was damaged at some point and poorly repaired. Since the chainplates attach in this same area how far up does the delamination go?
