Well, here's my conundrum. I have a small hole developing in my muffler. Generally I would buy a new one and install it, however I'm having surgery on the 21st of this month and will be out of commission for a while. By the time I'm somewhat back in commission it will be winter, so it would probably be another few months before I would install the new muffler. I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck with patching a muffler? I was thinking of getting some metal and cutting it to fit and using some high temp rivets to install it. I would probably put some JB Weld under the patch as well as around the edges once it's in, just to make sure.
On a good note, my driving will be limited for a while, so I won't be putting mega miles on the truck with the temporary patch. I'm trying to button up so many things before the surgery that I just don't think I'll have time to get to doing it myself for now. Any advice is appreciated.
