Any air-cooled VW repair shop here or down south worth going to will know
this is the way to fix the F-Pipes.

it is really not possible to just take the pipe into a welding shop and expect
them to weld a crack without mocking it up on a cylinder head for a good fit.

Sorry, should have spotted where you're located.
I had a really tough time getting mine welded off the car. I guess they bend from the heat of welding so need to be held in place by the head studs. I also found that even the most accomplished welders have a hard time with the metal used in these.
