Just looking for some advice on the following.
I have a road legal dune-type buggy, which i have encountered a problem with. What has happened is that a metal bracket which holds the exhaust in place, has snapped, thus meaning the exhaust can move.
The exhaust has a joint section in it, which basically has to stay together, else its a hell of a racket, lol! I can get them to meet up again, but as the bracket where the tail section of the exhaust is still attached is loose, it easily comes apart again.
I doubt i can tie a rope to it to keep it in place temporarily, as the bracket gets hot due to the heat from exhaust, hence i believe would just melt/burn.
Obviously getting the bracket welded back together is the best option, but i was just wondering if anyone knows any of the following:
1). A method of joining metal together, without having to find a professional welder?
2). A method to 'tie' something round the hot piece of metal and onto the frame, which would keep it all in place, but something that would not melt or burn? (i know this works as i currently have a bungi-cord holding it in place exactly as planned)
3). Any other options, lol?
Any help much appreciated,
