Is this deck too far gone to repair?

Me again....

Give me you brutal honest opinion. Is this 312 mower deck too far gone to repair? I thought about trying to basically cut out the whole top part of the deck and weld in new sheet metal. But I'm not sure how to make the spindles back in their original height position, because the original locations are recessed from the factory stamping. And as you can see there has already been lots of welding years ago. Any brutal thoughts/opinions?

Take the good parts off of it, throw it out in the yard and plant some green flowers in the 3 holes where the spindles go and go hunting for another deck shell. That would get you 3 birds with one stone, or mower deck in this case.
1. your being green and recycling ( the mower deck)
2. You will have to go deere hunting and buy something
3. You will have the new flower garden done that has been on the honey to do list.
