How do I attach a chrome muffler tip?

I purchased at least three different muffler tips over the course of my Accord ownership. Each time, I would cut the tip to size and adhere it somehow to the car's muffler -- I think I used JB Weld for all my attempts at mating the two. Each time the muffler tip would disappear, anywhere between one week and three months after putting it on.

I know for sure how I lost one of them: during a trip to Vegas, I was piloting the fully-loaded car over a wavy (up-down) road, only to have the muffler every-so-slightly scrape the road during one of the dips. Bye bye muffler tip!

So, what's the best way to adhere the tip to the muffler?

Further complicating the procedure is that the stock muffler tip bends downward, so I need to somehow prop the chrome tip so that it looks correctly on the car (basically have it come out straight, while the internal pipe is bent). Check out the pictures to see what I'm talking about.

Weld that sucker on. The heat from the muffler is probably too great for JB Weld to handle.

Isn't it kinda funny when iFixit people answer questions from other iFixit people? You guys all work together, yet do all this via the internet.

This way it helps more people who might have the same question! Plus, on Answers my question is exposed to all sorts of people with all sorts of backgrounds, not just iFixitians :)

Miro works at a different iFixit office about 15 minutes away, so I do not get to see him as often as I would like :(

Watch the angle on that exhaust tip. I had a 91 Honda Civic that melted the plastic valance above the muffler because they were touching.

Definitely a good tip!

The first picture is shot at an angle, so you can't really see the distance from the top of the muffler tip to the bottom of the bumper. There's approx. 2-3 inches between the two, more than enough to accommodate a straight-out muffler tip.

Thankfully that's one thing I won't have to be worried about :)
