Question have a spare catback exhaust laying around...needs welding at resontor. ideas? help

My old catback which is an n1 style broke at the resonator near the axle so it basically just slid right out of the resonator (honeycomb looking part inside pipe) the pipe can slide back in but the weld needs to be sealed.
My step dad has an arch welder at his farm would this work fine?
I don't know much about fabrication but wouldn't mind making this a first project
I could care less on the quality of its looks but I would like tohave a nice sealed up weld.
Help?
Thanks,
Chris

An arc weldor probably isn't the best idea, especially if your exhaust is stainless. You'd have to pick up some Blue Max welding rod or similar for stainless. Stainless gets real soupy when stick welding. This project could prove to be difficult for a beginner.

If it's carbon steel, then it would be a little easier.

You have to make sure that your using the appropriate rod for the the type of machine you're welding with. AC usually uses a different rod than DC.

For Example:
-AC will use 6011 all position.
-DC will use 6010 all position.

When fitting up pie, you usually put a tack at all four quadrants, then make it easy to get to so you can weld it out.

Before you blow a big hole in your exhaust, make sure that you practice on two pieces of metal that are similar in material and thickness to your exhaust.

And don't look at the light without a hood. You'll get flashburn. It sucks...
