U-Joint Troubles

I need to replace the u-joint on my 98 323IS. When I was replacing the flex joint and mid-shaft support bearing, I noticed the u-joint appeared as if it were mounted to the driveshaft in a manner it was not to be removed. I have since found out you have to replce the entire driveshaft...Not me! I plan to use a die-grinder to remove the retaining tabs and press out the u-joint, then take the u-joint down to a driveline shop and get a replacement. After I install the new joint, I'm going to weld retaining straps across each side to keep the cups from falling out.
Does anyone think this is crazy?
Does anyone have any other ideas???
