Exhaust

This is my exhaust pipe, any suggestions on a fix so it can pass inspection until I can get it welded.

I live in Texas. I'm mainly worried about breaking a sound law.

I don't think that'll hold very well as its not airtight. It could be the cause if your shaking as well. Try making it airtight around the seams. Metal on metal doesn't make a very good seal if not welded

There are "permanent" clamps that'll work.

Those are a pretty sexy alternative (bandaid) to welding. Honestly didn't know they existed.

Unless you use rusty wire, it'll never work.

All you need is an exhaust pipe coupler, you will need to cut a small section of the exhaust out slide coupler in, clamp with exhaust clamps and bam!! Permanent fix!!

I plan on getting new exhaust anyway. This is to hold me over so I can pass inspection.
