I was going to say the same thing about the paint, but it's probably the angle he took the picture at since he said it was bare. How long did it take to fail?
You could also drill some holes through your torque arms and drop outs then counter sink them for the correct screw type. That would help in keeping it in place. Probably 3 screws each side is all that would be needed.
Shouldn't pinch type's have a slit at the arc end with a hole drilled at the end of the slit to prevent stress cracking? Might make it easier to tighten and if it's mild steel it probably wouldn't crack because it's more malleable.
I personally like having stuff welded if it can be, even just a few big tack welds so I never have to worry about it, but if the metals are too dissimilar sometimes there is no other choice.
