    It shouldn't be too much. It just involves cutting the mount and welding a cap over the hole, and some paint.

    with all the dirt that fell out of the body mount after I cut it, We just decided to say screw getting it welded. I know plenty of people who have run it open like this for a long time with no problems.

    Good point. It looks like it would make cleaning it easier too.

    Angle grinder with a cutoff wheel. Touched it up afterwords with the regular grinding wheel.

    Both sides.

    You could cut it yourself with a sawzall (plenty of pics on this site) and make cardboard templates of the new plates. It would save you some money because all the welder would have to do is trace the templates, cut them out, and weld them on. When he's done, you can finish the job with $8 worth of primer and paint.
