On my never ending journey to stop my ear drums from popping from my busted exhuast, I am trying to JB Weld the two pipes in place. Keep in mind that its a clean break completely off. This is just temporary till I can sell enough cellphones to get my HS Header.My last two projects: Project "Fiberglass strap"
and Project "Wire screen with metal straps and muffler cotton stuff" were complete disasters. Hopefully this 3rd attempt will allow me to come home without my wife hearing me coming from 3 miles away.

Project JB Weld has been a success so far.
That stuff gets HOT after you knead it!!!
I sanded both sides of the pipe and slopped the mix on there. I held it in place for 3- 5 minutes and it was already getting hard.
I made sure it was tight all around. After an hour this stuff was hard as steel and would not even budge. Test drive went smooth too. =-) Lets see if it holds up.

hate to say it, but it won't work for long - i tried that...

that smell that it makes when it gets hot is extremely toxic, so be carelful..

basically though, when the **** gets hot, it gets brittle...

****!!!
"FORGET" was right on the money.
That smell was horrible and after about 30 minutes of driving it broke apart!!!
WTF!! So much for "hard as steel"!!
Piece of crap!!
I went out and bought this wire patch with that toothpaste stuff and tomorrow morning I will try it. What a pain in the ass this has been. NOTHING CAN WITHSTAND THAT EXHAUST HEAT!! The muffler shop wanted $150!! Hell no!! Thats money towards the header.
... Its not the muffler thats busted its the downpipe. Cracked right in two pieces.

my nx's exhaust is making a loud ass puttering sound and it's really annoying. i haven't found any real evidence of a hole, except where the chrome tip is...

and they are real tiny..

What is brazing?
I appreciate the offers very much.
Your city in Alabama is a good 6 hour drive from here. My ex is from Birmingham.

Well, Im back with a patch on it AGAIN.
Maybe this time it will hold up.
I cant believe the heat the exhaust puts out!!
