Maxime's pictures are far better than mine, as they show the interior of the 
problem area.  The first of his sequence shows a captive nut just to the 
left of an oval hole.  That nut is also welded to a vertical triangular 
piece like the one shown on the right of the oval hole.  The corner carrying 
that nut, part of it vertical and part horizontal, is what has torn out. 
The remainder of the area is sound.  Maxime replaced the entire area, which 
is more than I need.  Maybe all I need is an L-shaped piece for the corner 
holding the nut, but the entire seam shown aft of the oval is weak right 
across the car, so I feel like I should do something for the whole thing.
