Default Re: exhaust rust hole patch help

Took a little while to find the little red dot but I eventually found it lol.

How big is the hole? Appears that the weld on the resonator is rusting out. I think you should try and find someone to weld it shut for you. If its a big hole a shop might be able to weld a plate to it to close it, but a small hole can easily just be filled with weld. Local muffler shop can do it easy but might try and up sell you. A performance/fabrication shop might be your better bet especially if you have a friend that is buying parts/services from them. It would probably take them longer to lift and drop the car than actually weld the hole. Go in and BS with the person for a while and see what kind of deal they'll give you. Any shop with a lift and welder would be able to easily weld a small to medium sized hole closed.
