Exhaust bodge

Here's a photo of the bodge I carried out to hold Lin's silencer together and prevent it falling off after the pipe fractured where it exits the back of the silencer.

I knew the exhaust mountings were on the way out before I set off but I didn't have time to replace them. Since setting off, the manifold to downpipe joint has repeatedly come loose, and the mad detour on the Land Rover track did for the silencer.

Luckily at home I have a good spare stainless exhaust that Wanderinstar gave me so Lin's existing exhaust only has to stay on until we get back from Scotland. It's a bit noisy and I have to wedge my torch under the wire that comes up through the passenger floor but so far it still seems to be holding securely! :D
