To join the old and new tube, or just to repair?

I’d be surprised if The Metal Store don’t have the correct tube - they had decent thickness 1.5” square tube (that wasn’t the think junk used for table legs) when no one else did.

Just put new tube inside - the holes in the picture are very strange, there’s really thick metal surrounding them - it’s not the usual silk lattice.

I am advised that the tube isn't freely available and that I should cut up a scrap SE6 series propshaft.

Not sure where to go from here, my reputation and the owner's safety is at risk if I can't make a good job of it.
I have some of the correct (I believe) tube in stock
