Default Decent looking heat shield for big diameter side pipes?

Does anybody make one? Cuz these full header pipes like to roast legs.

Corvette Mods part# 12213... they are a little pricey ..... I have also sent an email to Walker exhaust. They advertise a stainless steel heat shield for various applications that is priced right and can be purchased on Amazon, but there is no technical info on their website. Will edit this post if/when they reply.

Got these from Bancock Dean. Pretty pricey however it will save you a lot of pain. Ask me how I know. You can actually put your hand on the covers when you first pull off the highway. You do have to be careful when you raise the hood , if your wearing shorts as the front of the pipes are not covered, again ask me how I know.

Yeah you do lol. First day firing up the rebuilt 427 on my '68 build and I barely nicked the header with my shin and I have a permanent mark 3 months later.

My fix isnt the answer for most but my pipes are wrapped in header wrap,
Kind of ugly until it dawned on me it fits my road race theme perfectly,
Now you can buy it in many colors and i will run it when my car is driving again,

But if you want good looking deans is it

Did anyone try these? They only sell them in 48" long sections, but a defunct Summit website shows that they used to make 36" versions, which would have been perfect.

I emailed Walker. Perhaps they will sell the 36" 29033 shields.

In the meantime, I ordered the Walker clamps (stainless), 35884, $34- per pair at Rock Auto, and a pair of Patriot side shields, H7452. Not as nice as the Walker stainless shields, but better than burning my legs.

what pipes are you putting them on? I have the 4" Maximizer exhaust and I'm wondering if you got the same thing? Did they provide clamps as well?

Walker clamps (post 10). 4" truck pipes o. Hooker headers. I'll post a photo tomorrow if I get them mounted. I'll need to drill the Patriot shields.
