The bad guys were spooked off before they could finish the job on my 2002, 260k mi CRV. So my (replaced only a few years ago) catalytic is still there, but there’s a nice clean cut in the pipe behind it.
Of course, I just last year decided “why do I need comprehensive coverage on a car worth $500?” so any repair will be out of pocket (local Honda dealer is assessing it now).
Can I just clamp a piece of pipe over the break and call it done? What would you do?
