Welder needed

I noticed that my car sounded funny last night, and when i looked at the exhaust, the part where one pipe splits into 2 has a crack in it where the original weld broke, messing up the exhaust flow back pressure, and ultimately, sounds very annoying.

i talked to chris who said some of you guys can weld. if youre on the SE side of town, or know anyone who is, please help me out.

if its on an older car you car forget about welding it. that stuff rusts from the inside out and you'll just keep burnin through. i don't know what part of town your in but if your feelin kinda ghetto you could probablly rig it with one of those patch kits from Auto Zone. I can gaurantee it won't last past 6 months though.

ive been turned away by 3 menieke's.....my car is too low to the gorund to put up on the ramp....they said it would be a 15 dollar fix....i'm thinking i might just take it to Runner's shop if he can get it up on the ramp for me....or just putting it up on jacks, and removing the last catback piece and taking it to the shop off the car..

yeah, that'll be really cheap at a meineke. Way cheaper than the beer you'd have to pony up for someone on here to do it.

forget the flex pipe, I used to do muffler work for a living. yeah, it's a quick fix, someone with a mig welder should have no problem fixing it.
