Working on a few brews.. I find it ironic its 3*F outside... Brr - And I'm writing about heat shields... --- Anyhoo this fall one of my "to dos" was to beef up heat shielding on the 5th gen. For some reason, the last few seasons, it would cook my ass to hamburger and limited time I could handle on it to a couple hours a shot with out a break.... I used several products on the market --- DEI Engineering / Heatshield Products flex transmission covering and ThermoTec - all have great stuff.... Photos photos photos -- also an excuse to get more practice with this SmugMug photo site.. Need to figure out to reduce photos before posting, but I'll get there later.... Starting out - I pulled the back end of the tank loose and pulled the stocker rubber shield parts. Used Heatshield Products formable transmission cover with adhesive and cut that to shape on the front rubber shield...Being stiff aluminum and foam, it was very tricky to get it shaped and stuck down. There is a perimeter tape that ensures it stays put. -- the battery cover is from DEI - a more flexible material. That one was fairly simple. Backside look...... After 3 or 4 - cut fit, cut fit, cut fit, --- got it installed to a good fitting..... fits good, looks good too. Right side.... Battery cover -- no brainer - ez
