Ouch.

I'm sure you can weld them together... If you haven't done to much damage, you may be able to fold it under and just make relieve cuts in the part that hasn't been hacked up yet (so it'll bend easier). There are abunch of threads reguarding this that have just been posted, try searching. There are also thread on www.jeepin.com about doing this.

Good luck!

If you don't want to get it welded, but want to keep water and dirt out, just get a can of GREAT STUFF expanding foam and fill in the gap. I cut through some of my seams on purpose and I just filled the gaps with that stuff and I've had no problems with debris getting inside.
