Default best way to seal exhaust leak without welding

i've got a few exhaust leaks that i need to repair before i can start driving my car full time. what is the best method without welding? i don't want to have to drop the entire exhaust if i don't have too. any products that anyone would recommend? i was thinking about just buying some exhaust sealant and putting it over all the welds.

any imput appreciated.

Sorry, this is far from being the best method without welding, try again.

My way is undoubtedly 100% the best method of repairing an exhaust leak without welding. You can't argue that

i'd be more tempted to replace it, but its all brand new piping and flanges, but it was my first time welding and didn't quite seal completely. on the catback piping the welds have very minimal leakage, a few pin holes here and there, the major leak is on the downpipe flange off the turbo from what we can tell. it holds strong, but just doesn't seal very well, maybe i'll try jb weld there.

i had a big ass hole in my muffler and there was no way that i was going to be able to weld it as the metal was very thin and old. so i just patched it up with a tube of goop and those patches from local hardware store.
seems to be doing fine. just making sure you take some carb cleaner to get it nice and clean and scuff it with little bit of sand paper if its painted at all.
