Thought I noticed something in the first picture! Wow that sucks. I had a crome unit I could never get seated. I finally put it on a level surface and it was bowed like crazy. I milled it lfat and never had another problem. Never saw a hole in one before...

Buy a stock aluminum one and either polish it yourself or get it done. Nothing beats stock parts for durability.

looks like a little JBWELD and some dry time would have saved a tow
almost as good as duck tape would at least lasted 10 minutes
sorry that it happened, at least it is a relitive enexpensive fix
