    Dave, I think I should have searched and read this thread first ;)

    I'll send payment now - look forward to the shield.

    i made a heat sheild when i had my old induction cone before i went back to standard airbox.

    now i'm running a Jetex open cone i made another one. had some old ally laying around not the best looking one i've made but it does the job.

    sprayed matt black
    needs a few bits trimming off still
    waiting for the edging strip to arrive now
    mounted the ign amp on the inside aswell to try to keep it as cool as possible

    Gentlemen,

    Apologies for resurrecting such an old thread but I am going to give the DIY heat shield a go and was wondering if anyone might have the design as it's missing from the initial post?

    Thanks,

    PJ.

    I bought some aluminium sheet off eBay to make a mount for my tablet

    They listed various sizes, so might be worth a look. Failing that, you could try any machinist/fabricator places that might sell (or give) you a large enough off cut.

    Should be fine with it as the MAF goes through the heat shield and then filters attach on the inside.
