Trunk latch pics: parts / tech info needed

I was hoping I would never has to ask about this.....but, the trunk latch broke today. I am looking for used parts, some advice, how much more may need to be torn apart, what can be fixed with JB Weld. Small pins and clips should be readily available. On the handle / riveted parts, I would assume four of the seven rivets need to be removed.

The last photo showing the latch, that has slots for the pins, are they supposed to be that way or is that wear? The Clymer manual has little to offer on this one.

I noticed the latch levers were not symmetrically balanced when open, and it was starting to hang up on the right side when closing. The handle broke the last time it was opened before returning home today.
