6. DONE. Weld seam in exhaust just before cat. Ghetto rigged with flexible tailpipe repair kit and 2 clamps from Partsource for now.
Thanks to Alex at ACP for doing what he could to weld it up. The pipe was so thin I had to fill in the rest with muffler cement.
7. To do. New cat back or just new muffler.
Scheduled for new (used) exhaust next week with Remus muffler. Also C/O Alex at ACP. Can't wait.
