Use white zip ties and I reckon they'll blend in better Darren.

I totally fixed my car exhaust the other day too. It's been an interesting week for exhausts

Cor I like bodges but I hope the MOT man doesnt see that one! Perhaps a jubilee clip or stainless tie would have looked a bit more convincing

Are you replacing the cat just for that broken lug or has it got other problems?

Both the lugs have rusted off. I've got a second hand one coming. I'm going to fit it and as long as it's working ok I'll keep it. If it turns out to be bad I can remove the flange from it and weld it to my existing cat
