rusted tail gate hinge ?

Went to change my 80 tail gate to a 84 one which uses a different body hinge which I have but the old hinge is rusted thru on the bottom bolt. I do have a donor section and was thinking how to go about replacing the section. How have you done it ?

Cut the bad area out on yours and then cut the donor section out to match and butt weld in place. It's also a part that can be easily fabricated to replace if you don't have a donor section to use.
