Rear Crossmember Repair

The rear crossmember on my 110 appears to have seen better days. Financial constraints rule out a sexy new gavanized chassis (plus from what I can tell this - and most likely under the transmission crossmember - are the only issues, so I am beginning to investigate my repair options for the rear crossmember. As I see it, I only have 2 basic options:

1. Repair the existing crossmember
2. Replace the current crossmember with a new/better one.

Can anyone provide first hand knowledge of the level of difficulty in either option? Additionally, it is my understanding that the 90 and 110 rear crossmembers are not identical is that also correct? Finally, any ideas on sourcing this part? RN carries them with and without extensions for the 109, but nothing for the 110. I did some searching but did not come up with anything substantial.

Any help appreciated.

Replacement is the way to go. You can get a galv. rear x-member with the frame extensions (suggested) from places like Richards Chassis or Designa-Chassis in the UK.
Welding is required to install, but it is a straight forward job.
