Hi Guys,
Can I just get a replacement shield, reuse the old shield and attach some how, or do I need to replace the whole cat assembly? Is this an easy fix for me or for any muffler shop and if themuffler shop, howmuch should it cost?
Thanks!

Thanks guys - if the whole converter, is this just disconnect the O2 sensor, 3 bolts per flange, a couple of gaskets on-off-on and done? If so, maybe I'll put it up on blocks andgive it a shot myself?
