Side Pipe Heat Shields

My neighbor badly burnt his leg getting out of my roadster two weeks ago. I need to fit heat shields on the side pipes. Who supplies the best? Preferrably would like stainless to match the pipes.

That is absolutely my most important concern when new people are getting out of the roadster. I normally will tell them to keep their seat until I get around to the passenger side. I've been known to actually grab a person's leg and make sure it clears the side pipe when they are getting out of the car. Most people just don't realize how hot those pipes can get.

What's the difference between ceramic & chome shields, since finishline charges the same for both?

John-- Ceramic cool down faster in my opinion. Chrome retain heat .
Everyone should have a burn kit in their trunk just for this reason
Burns if not treated quickly can lead to nasty infections.

There is a vendor that sells a complete kit somewhere.

Thanks to everyone for their responses. A burn kit will be purchased this week before I go out again with a passenger. Because I am a stainless fan, I will probably go with the Backdraft shields as they are the best looking found so far.

By the way, my neighbor is a racing man. He has his step son driving the PASS South late model series. His comment to me last night it was God punishing him for riding in a Ford as God invented the Chevy!

Exhaust heat shields

I'm very pleased with Drummer Mike's SS heat shields. Luke warm to the touch after driving. Bare stainless steel very shiny after a little buffing. I've seen the Corvette type with the holes looking pretty scruffy after a liitle use. Mike's should be easy to keep looking good.

Hi Jim,

I'm going to have black pipes as well. Did you ask Mike to send them un-finished or did you blast them and then paint?

Thanks in advance.

Miles, The shields look great polished. Your car came out excellent also! I've had a lot of inquiries on the cost of polishing. What I've heard so far is $75-$100...is that about right? Thanks for the props, everyone. Mike

Hey Mike!
Thanks! Yes, 100$ to polish them up and they blend right in with the SS pipes. Very pleased with the look. I rolled on a heat shield adhesive on the underside as Bob did in the post below and the shields only get warm to the touch.

Thanks again!

Miles

Anything you can add to the back will help keep temps down. Too many variables with engine heat...rich, lean, timing, etc. Everyones car is different, but you won't lose skin with shields, mine or anyone elses. Mike
