Default Heat shield - Anyone have one or place to buy?

Hi guys. Anyone have a heat shield laying around that I can buy? I have ceramic coated side exhaust, but I need to protect my sons legs. Or suggestions of where to get ones that look good?

Thanks!

I use a welding pad and drape it over the pipes when guests get in and out. It works well and fits behind the seat for storage.

I have a couple. They came with the car. I had them black ceramic coated to match the pipes. But then decided not to use them.

I second that. I bought an 18x24 one on Amazon and it has turned out to be the best purchase that I made for my Cobra

You can also try sending an email to Drummer Mike here: m49francuck@hotmail.com. He used to make awesome shields and I had a set. You will not burn yourself on those and can touch them even after an hours run.

If you want to see some, enter this in Google: “drummer mike heat shields“. You will see the ffcars forum come up and there are pics in there.

He is hard to get a hold of... but I was actually able to chat with him. He said he really only made them for Factory Five cars.... but he and I will work on seeing what we can do on the BDR car. The muffle on the BDR seems to be longer than a F5R.

The fellow I purchased my car from removed them because he thought it looked cool without them. He threw them away. One touch of the hot pipes and cool was out the window. I purchased a new set from Iconic.

I don't like the look of metal heat shields, so I took the above
concept a step further to appease my OCD.

Had a leathersmith make a full length contoured paper pattern of both door sills.
He used thick black leather for the show side.
Backed it with Kevlar fabric on hot side and filled the inside with Nomex padding.
Then he sewed a strip of Velcro along the inside bottom for attaching to carpet.
Topped it off with a red leather pull strap to deploy while still seated.
Driver or passenger can tug that red strap and the shield just flops out over the pipe.
Driver and passenger shields simply roll up and fit along the door jam and seat.
Looks really Tier 1.

At full operating temp, I can place my hand on the protected leather side
without time limit and only feel slight warmth.

After years of use the backside Kevlar fabric has no heat discoloration.
