bought this off ebay:



BUT...

one of the arms is missing to hold it onto the car! and looks like it has fallen off because it has been welded with mild steel:



Took it to get welded today but the guy said he'd need to use special wire and gas to weld it and it'd cost me near £50 to do it! omg he said that using the mild steel weld would burn holes in the box! the other arms are attached in the mild steel way!

can anyone help me out and tell me whats what?

There's two different wires used for welding stainless and mild steel, they're about 8 quid for a 20m reel, I've done both without any gas?!
