That thing is welded on IIRC
. I wouldn't give up on it. Someone around can cut out the old one and weld in the replacement. Someone has posted a how-to on here for replacing that panel...it'd be worth hunting/searching the forum to see where it is. If I find it I'll post it.
Where are you located? THere's gota be an unsalted/good condition one that could be cut out.
