Temporary repair of EGR exhaust pipe

I have managed to do a temporary repair on the EGR exhaust pipe or “better” still what is left of it! We are currently in Austria on vacation and I don’t want to try to remove the flange from the exhaust manifold just in case I damage the bolts and I can not repair it and ending up to take the Land-cruiser in to a garage. I found in a local shop an exhaust repair kit which is a kind of bandage soaked in glue which goes hard when the exhaust heats up. I hope this is good enough until I’m back home to do a proper job.  It looks like a bodged up  but with the restricted access this is the best I can do. We have still managed to visit my friend, Christoph and his son Jason on the way down as we have crossed Germany on our way to Austria.
