Cool HELP...Rusty Frame

The front crossmember(the one under the radiator) on my 1984 British spec D-90 is starting to rust through. The front horns are a little scurvy too. Does anyone make replacements for these items or do I need to have new parts custom fabricated?
Thanks for any advice... I need some sage guidance.
Mike

In the UK they offer just about every part of the chassis so you might have to look @ UK shops or maybe have safari rover bring in the parts you need.

Have you checked the entire chassis for soft / rust spots?

we have a used frame that is in great condition in the front if you want to get it and cut off the parts you need. The rear crossmember is rusted, but the rest is good.
$300.

Coming your way and cutting the part I need off the frame might be an option. I'm be out of town for two weeks, but, I'll be in touch when I return. Thanks for the help.
