BTDT. I opted to use the existing hole in the frame to fish a new bolt into place.

Here's what I did..
- Take a rectangular piece of flat bar and drilled a hole it it for the bolt
- Weld the bolt head ot the flat stock.
- Take a short, thin, stiff piece of wire and poke one end of the wire through the bolt hole. Work it until it sticks out the hole in the side of the frame.
- Wrap the wire around the end of the bolt and drag it through the frame and out the hole.

Now you've got a bolt that won't spin in the frame and you haven't made swiss cheese out of your frame rail. You also don't need to worry about torching your gas tank
