Today, a long box was delivered right to our door at home. Inside is the replacement bottom section which is about 4" wide that gets welded to the bottom of the boot lid.
I'll have the Boot off today and take it to the local welder. This part comes from John Quilter who fortunately for me he had lying around in his garage.
Thanks, John.

Now the trick will be getting the latch and lock removed. The steel square rod from the outside chrome piece is frozen into the interior metal carriage part. Ouch!!! I beat and beat on it to try to remove. New idea is map gas and torch it. Problem will be annealling the spring inside. Or just give it to the welder man and make it his problem chancing a total loss to the lock altogether.

Hold it. You need to remove the latch from the boot lid first. That will expose two little bolts that hold the handle to the boot lid.

You'll need a set of 1/4 drive sockets and an extension to access these small nuts. I would spray them first with something like P B Blaster to free them up.
