Much of it depends on where the small exhaust holes are located. Might be worthwhile taking it to a muffler shop and getting their opinion as to whether is it repairable (removing that section[s] and welding a piece in place) or not. However, if the majority of the exhaust is in poor condition it's probably best to find a suitable replacement since the cost is relatively reasonable. Good luck.
