A while ago some one was asking what people were using or doing for a heat shield so I thought I would pull me finger out and show you all.
Image That is the top of the heat shield.

Image That is how it is mounted.
Image That is it mounted on the ute.
Image That is underneath.
The underneath is layered with heat tape to keep the heat out. What do you think?

It looks very proffessional eveytime I look at it. So the idea with heat shields is to stop heat from coming off the exhaust and reducing bay engine temps, so how does the heat tape work?

Well it soaks up the heat and has reflective tape on it also. Dont think it will keep bay temps down that much but it does stop the heat getting dirrectly onto the brake booster and melting the throttle cable.
