The first design attempts didn’t exactly work out.
The downpipe comes really close to the brake lines, so some design work went into the heat shield as well. All of this will get integrated together into one nice assembly that can be bolted on. We will additionally use reflective tape on any harnesses that passes through this area.
You know how it goes with fabrication.
Once the shield is more or less right, the attachment to the chassis is figured out using cardboard as a design aid.
