frame missing or drilled out? Making sure the frame is an iron alloy(test with a magnet) vs. aluminum(???) I would be prone to welding vs. drilling. If done
right it could add to the strength and not possibly take away? Just
speculating here FWIW...be safe and check!
PS: maybe it's ok as long as you don't go over the "holes drilled #" quota?? ;]
