In chamber 3 yes that would be the way to go, just cut and replace with a tube and weld it back.

The difficult part would be re fabricating the section in chamber 1. It's not round, it's very much oval. Not saying its not possible, but I doubt it be cheaper then just welding each hole.

The underside plan is to open the muffler even further with my angle grinder so I have access to the underside.

I'm not saying this is going to successful but if I close off the perforated tube there will be a change in the exhaust note. I'm not even sure if it will be a good sound, it may be the most annoying thing we ever hear....but we'll all find out soon
