Need something to fill a rusty pipe

I bought a Japanese mini truck and besides many other problems it has a frame crossmember that is badly rusted. It is a pipe about 2 1/2" diameter and curved so I can't put a smaller pipe through it. I'm thinking I could find some kind of liquid that would harden in it to strengthen it. Would probably take the better part of a gallon. Any ideas that wouldn't be expensive?

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

It would take 1000 of them.

If I was concerned about the integrity of the crossmember,I'd cut it out and replace it .

you could use liquid lead , melt some old wheel balancing bricks , but wouldn it be better to replace that pipe ?

The winner is the man with most tools !

Replacing it is not an option. It couldn't be bought, would have to be made and is complicated.

Would rather not add that much weight.

How about welding some plate steel or angle iron to the OUTSIDE of it? Or just get another cross member (This is the removable transmission support, I assume?) from a junk yard...

1978 Suzuki GS-550 (1985-2005) sold

Post a photo of it. I have a CNC plasma table. Regardless of the shape, a cross member is basically four sides of a tube. Cut it out, and have a CNC plasma table owner cut two sides to match the profile, out of 1/4" plate steel. Then weld flat square or rectangular plates across them where possible. Will it be stock? NO. Will it outlast the truck? YES.
