    Likely your exhaust is made from stainless. I can weld it, but I don't have a setup for stainless (or aluminum) at my house, currently. I have a MIG only right now, which *can* do stainless, but I don't have the right gas or spool wire for it. However, if it's mild steel... I have the measures to do that.

    Machete don't text. No seriously. I'm bad at texting, ask around.

    I will try to text you later, but I will need to know what the metal is before welding it. I can also probably tell you, when I see it, but I am not going to attempt welding stainless, or god forbid aluminum with ER70S-3 wire. Yeah, you can probably lump metal on there to make it "stick", and it might even hold forever... but I'm not going to put my name on that. Who knows when that weld will fail and then you're dragging an exhaust pipe going 80mph.

    But like I said, I'll try to text you later. We can talk more.

    Check out 6651 Customs. They did my exhaust. No issues.
