My Ride: 2001 M3 Convertible
Header flanged ripped off

I was switching out my mid pipes to the non res version and took it for a very short spin around the block when I ran into a problem. My front bimmerworld Y pipe was supported but when i was driving down the road, it flew off and took the flanges from the headers with it. I wasn't thinking and tried picking it up out of the road so no cars would hit it and got 2nd degree burns but ill live. My question is how do I get these flanges back on to my headers?

You clean it well and then have it re-welded.
