Custom Bumper Brackets

Hey all! I am working on my 68 Vert project and I have a small dilema. I picked out a nice set of over-rider bumpers for it, but they do not mount on the original bumper brackets. And the brackets that fit the bumper do not match the bolt pattern on the car... So, I found some that are made for the conversion, but at $45 per bracket I'm thinking I'm getting robbed. So, my question is can I cut them and re-weld to fit? I know a professional welder I would have do it just because I don't know if my skills are good enough for such a safety-critical part.

are you planning on running pre67 bumpers on the 68? mamotorworks sells a pair of brackets to run the euro blade bumpers on 68+ cars at 60$ a pair. as far as the over riders go. im at a loss.
