    You can struggle with what you got. Most new exhaust pipes & mufflers have a plating on them. Grind this off in the area you are going to weld. Hopefully it is a slip fit joint. If your going to be butt welding joints that will make it all the more difficult. Make sure you have no gaps. Use short tacks instead of trying to weld a continuous bead. Not the correct way but maybe get a sleeve to slide over the joint to weld instead of trying to butt weld.

    You could rent or borrow a bottle of gas & pick up a small spool of wire. You could make all your cuts & let someone else weld it. You could take it to the local muffler shop. Any way you do it, good luck.

    What kind of welder do you have?

    Which is cheaper?

    A bottle of gas or a new tailpipe assembly.

    Switch to .030 bare wire & 75/25 gas. You give no info to go on. Is it new or a repair. Steel or stainless? I never took the mind reading class.
