92 spider convertible frame arm broken

Hi I have a 1992 spider and the lower arms have broken off the mounting brackets. It looks like the arms are intact it is the mounting bracket itself that is broken. Does anyone know where I can get these brackets? I have searched the Internet without luck. Looks like a parts car is the way to go. The brackets are bolted to the car with two bolts and a nut. I need both the driver and passenger side. I took it to a welder but he doesn't athink he can line it up properly to get a strong enough weld. I don't have a garage and I can't get the top up. Help! Thanks. Tom

I have a couple complete and one parts frame. Send a photo and I can probably come up with what you need. FYI frames 71-94 are the same.

Tom,
am I right in guessing it is this bracket you are talking about?
(one on each side, handed I'd guess)

they are basically part of the frame mechanism.....OK you could drill out the huge rivets, but it is not going to be an easy job with the soft top on the car...methinks (I wonder if you undo the 3 bolts on each side, if that part of the frame might swing up to allow you access?....but if the frame needs to come off, you have to undo all those little nuts at the rear, job gets bigger and bigger).....then you need to replace the huge drilled out rivets with something appropriate.

Frame

Dom is right. Not sure how you can replace the drift rivets. I think you are better off replacing the entire frame. If you pay shipping from 97229 I will ship you one. You will have to clean it up.

That sounds like the best solution. Very generous of you. If you can let me know the cost I will gladly send it via PayPal if that works for you. Thank you again. Just the fax @ Comcast . Net
