exhaust mount cracking

vibration is a bitch.  the frame mount has now started to crack.  found a way to hold everything together and to be honest makes me in no rush to find a welder.

don't come to a cat forum saying you should have bought a dog.

It’s actually very secure. Did for a temp fix when I left for work and forgot I did it. Month later just as tight. Going to paint the clamps black.
