Exhaust pipe rattle fix

So I got a new muffler put on at the local discount Mexicano auto shop (learned my lesson) and they rearranged my exhaust so the pipe forward of the muffler sits about 1/2 inch above the transmission support member and now rattles like a mother. Instead of getting the exhaust redone I'm thinking it would be a lot cheaper to just get some kind of heat resistant material like maybe a welding blanket and fix between the pipe and support member to cushion the rattle. Anything used it'd have to be ok with being in constant contact with the exhaust.


Found some 'High Temperature Resistant Fiberglass Pads - Heavy Duty Professional Welding Pad' on Amazon described good for soldering, welding or brazing.



Any thoughts on this or suggestion for a better material?

Back in high school I had a completely rotten heap of garbage '66 Dodge Coronet I paid $100 for. Passenger foot well was rotted clean through and covered with a piece of 2x6 pine wedged in between the floor that remained and the exhaust. On a long road trip, the wood began to smolder and eventually flamed. After being extinguished with road side sand, it was fixed by hose clamping a welders glove around the exhaust where it contacted the wood. Drove that $100 pavement pounder for 18mo. Not that I recommend such hackery, but it worked for a broke guy circa 1988....
