Try some high temp silicone sealer around the muffler bolts then tighten them up,

should do the trick

Here in the states any auto parts store carries it. I never had a problem with leaking exhaust gaskets might be do to using the Ultra Copper. I do recommend after sealing and installing the gasket to let it set at least over night before running it. I normally let it set 24 hours.

Find your local SUPERCHEAP shop, they stock PERMATEX products and they work a treat.
