Mikes side pipe heat shield photos

anyone got some good photos of the DrummerMike ceramic coated stainless shields on chrome side pipes? I've been searching but can't find any good side shots. I want to see how the contrast of chrome/ceramic looks-thanks

Bob

Here's my car: (Sorry, not CHROME pipes )



I would think if you were looking for a better match for chrome, you could either get them chromed or if matching stainless sidepipes, simply polish them to match (they are stainless steel after all).

Though not chrome or stainless, they are DrummerMike's ceramic coated heat shields.

A few questions for those with these heat shields. How effective are they, would they prevent a snake bite? How can I get them?

Thanks!

Mine are very effective (ceramic coating helps too).

They still get hot though. Just not nearly as likely to burn you as the bare pipes. Generally if you brush your legs up against the shields after a long run it will feel warm enough to make you want to move your leg, but no burn of any kind.

Contact this guy if you want to find out how to get some. I think he knows something about them:

Thanks Bob, but when I clicked on the link it took me to Caterpiller's Website. Then when I came back to your post again, the link was no longer there. It seems that the aggressive advertising links that mysteriously become imbedded within posts these days are making it much less pleasurable to be on this site. I think my days of frequenting this site may be coming to an end......

Shields

I've driven with mike's shields for about 600 miles. When parked at idle they get very warm - some would say hot- to the touch and you don't want To keep your hand there but it won't bite (burn) you. When driving and you come to a stop several times I've reached down to touch them and they are only warm and I could keep my hand down there. I really like them. Mine are chrome. They were very easy to install.

here are the photos




I just bought some stainless steel exhaust heat shields from Mike Francuck, forum member.To help improve the thermal resistivity I glued on some "Thermo-Tec" heat barrier from Summit on the back side. I first cut the material inside the parmiter of the shield, then masked off the edges and the attachind supports before spraying the glue on the metal. I also sprayed glue on th thermal sheet and placed it on the metal immediately so I could slide it under the attaching supports.(you only get one shot when it's dry as you all know).
I tried polishing the sheilds my self, using about 6 grades of paper followed with polish, however doing stainless steel was significantly more difficult than I was used to compared to my aluminum polishing experience. After 3 hours I declared "UNCLE" and brought them to my local Metal Polisher, who did them right for a good price at only one hour of labor each. (I guess I could have choosen a better back ground for the photos). Here are a couple of photos of the shields before and after I installed them. I love Mike's product, very nice workmanship, beautiful product!
