Take it to a muffler shop and have them MIG it up. Prolly won 't cost more than $20 and you're dealing with a welder who welds thin-gauge metal every day.

Haha, the list keeps growing eh WillWren? I'm going to be down in Albany this tuesday (22nd) getting the tint, maybe after the tint is done?

Well I guess if we can't fix that when I'm down there I'll follow the advice of going to a muffler shop. Thanks everyone.

I work 10 hours a day, M-F. It will have to be a weekend. I'll be in CA on Tuesday for my Mother'* funeral.

That following weekend seems to be fairly open for me so far.

Well I looks as though Willwren will take care of you, if you we're closer to me I could Tig weld it or even add Stainless Steel reinforcement. You've got several options.
If welding is the prefered option then either Tig or Mig will do the job.

Hey guys where'* our shop in Ontario? In other words, where do we go to get quick fixes? In this case though I wouldn't concider it a quick fix.

Hope it works out for ya.

Eric, write this stuff down. Make a list of the issues/wants on your car. PM it to me, and I can start thinking about it. The work will go much quicker that way.
