Third Brake Light Support Bar

I have a 95 softtop with the third brake light that is attached to the support bar that always seems to rust out. I took the bar off and started grinding to find out the rust goes all the way through in one area. It also appears that I will be grinding until I am old to get to bare metal so sandblasting is in order. The question is I can buy a new one for $380 or have mine snadblasted, some metal welded in place and possibly some bondo action and repaint. Am I wasting my time with this or should I bite the bullet and buy a new one?
