Sydarm Body Work

I am trying to build a custom Sydarm and really need a little work done to it, but haven't had any luck in the past with welders near me trying to work on stainless bodies and a sydarm body isn't something I can afford to take a chance with. There just aren't a lot of spares lying around.

I would really like 4 things done to it:
1 - a low-profile guide ring soldered around the feed hole to help align feed tubes more quickly

2 - a small nut soldered to the front so that I could screw in a shotgun bead like these:

3 - a small length of Weaver rail attached at the back (cause why not if we're doing this other stuff)

and
4 - the CA adapter milled down and tapped deeper so that it just barely sticks out past the end of the body.
I'm going to put a macro elbow on the back and would like it not to stick out so far. I can use pliers to twist the adapter out even if there's barely anything sticking past the body.


If you have any recommendations for someone who could do the work, please let me know.
Thanks.

The guy was doing drugs too. However, if someone wants one any where near that price mine would be available.
