Post new member ML 320 Benz

whats up Benzworld I'm new to the site I'm so excited I just got my first Benz today its a 98 ML but I got it for the price of 2 tires outside of an exhaust issue for which I have a question about the truck runs perfect. I'm so greatful that God is still in the business of blessing people I'm really happy to be a Benzoman and to be a part of Benzworld now haha. Now to my question... the exhaust issue I have, a leak at the flexpipe of the first catylic converter (front) and I've also seen the price of a Cat. Not cheap but I also have been screwing around with cars enough to know that some exhaust leaks can be just modified a bit to fix a problem.

Now before you go knocking me around please be aware that I'm prepared to buy a new 3 piece cat system if there is no other way around the idea that I have to modify it which would be basically cut out the rusted flexpipe and reweld a new one saving me Hundreds of dollars. So my question would be is that a good idea ? Thanks for all your input and I'm looking forward to be with this gang until I leave this earth in some capacity or another. You know that saying "Once you go Benz you never go back" or something like that ....or how about "Once you go Benz you pick new friends" hahaha.
