I've seen these;


Any other "cheap" recommendations?

Hi Mark,

II used reflectagold

Entry #188 in my resto thread but here is the pic




It cost £100 for the 2 by 2 feet bit and some tape.

Looks very nice but I do wonder if it will stay stuck or not - I added high temp adhesive to secure it.

BUT, before deciding what to do, I also asked around and I was informed that it was more of an RF shield than a heat shield.

Anyway, looks nice and its almost as if there is a light on in the engine bay when I look in!

Which is nice.

Oh that was for the reflective bit like above.

I used the Zircotech coating on the metal bits and the ceramic/aluminium for the other parts.


Zircotech now do a flexible sheet stuff too which looks very good.

I have used product from

and Thermo-Tec foil in "hot" spots.

Thermo-Tec Adhesive Backed Heat Barriers protect parts and components from radiant heat. They can be used in applications to protect painted surfaces, plastic parts or any component from the damaging effects of radiant heat. These aluminized Heat Barriers are made up of woven silica with a flexible aluminized finish. The highly reflective surface of the material is capable of withstanding radiant temperatures in excess of 2000 degrees F.

For accoustic attenuation
