Default Tri Y Header Repair Part 2

I realized I didn't post the fix. Here's some photos. Don't wrap your headers in anything. If a heat shield is needed, I'll use/ make metal shields next time.

You can see the damage. I cut some 16 gauge exhaust piping sections and patched away in two spots, then welded the hell out of it. I couldn't have done this without the MIG.

Got me back on the road for now.

Headers aren't worth it for me. Loud exhaust, PITA maintenance, flanges loosen up, flanges warp. Look cool for a while though.

Next time I do major engine work, I'll install the replacement cast headers I got.
