Five months later and my patch is still intact. Keep waiting for it to break so I am motivated to get it repaired the right way.

No....I'll see if I can take one since I still have the encapsulation panels removed. But to describe it....it's a very generous wrapping of Tiger Patch, and then the heat resistant tape wrapped over that. I've checked it at least once a month and it seems to be holding fine. As I may have mentioned, my particular issue is that the bottom of the flex pipe broke such that it was about 1/4" off center from the down pipe. My guess is that, once that stress was relieved, it doesn't want to break any further....and the tape is flexible enough to absorb the inevitable vibrations.

Here's a pic… That section of pipe is badly rusted so I will just replace everything when I replace the pipe.

Everything after that section of pipe was replaced by the PO around 2007....looks practically new.

Glad the ghetto fix worked shertex as long as it do'nt leak is what counts. Those flex pipes seem to always be the weak link in the chain.
