To put in-between the can and plastics? Why, it comes with some sort of heat pad stock

Very good point. However I was thinking of trimming the side panel just a bit. Probably should have mentioned that.

You're welcome that stuff comes in handy, I use it for templates and it's good for shims .010" thick.   :thumbsup:

Gonna modify a couple of V-band clamps and go with some hi-temp (grill) paint for the flashing. Round off of the edges and mount it up = done :thumbsup:

the oem heat pad on the plastic does nothing when weight is applied to it.

even with only a stock pipe.

 

my friends setup did this

Yeah, that heat shield needs some air space to be effective, all it really does is reflect the heat. Once it touches the heat source it will absorb/transfer the heat to the plastics.
