Question Front window support

Hi All, Have a little problem with the front window support system. One of the previous owners lost the front window cut out the horizontal supports so he could install a different window. After some time he found the original window and just safety wired it into place. Now comes the hard part is that a critical structure point in the front and can it be patched repaired by splicing in a filler peace or should i replace the hole rib. Photos to follow

Splicing would work. The window sections are not tied into the floor sections like the side ribs are. They really just support the windows. I would rivet and splice unless you have access to new ribs.
