Re: Yet another heat shield thread

You can have it for €25 incl p&p - should save you about €10 But if it's all the same with you I'll send it by surface for that amount

Re: Yet another heat shield thread

Not my fault that I'm poor. I blame Fiat.

Obviously I'll check the p&p first, but if there's say a €10-15 saving in sending it surface, it would make sense seeing that I'm selling it incl p&p.

Re: Yet another heat shield thread

You could always give up the heat shield and buy some exhaust wrap ?

Re: Yet another heat shield thread

Nothing wrong with polishing my manifold heatshield !!! Or the exhaust boxes. Dont think I will mention cleaning the subframes then.

Re: Yet another heat shield thread

Exhaust wrap works well - I covered my manifold and it really made a difference!!

Re: Yet another heat shield thread

Cheers - will look into the wrap if my shield gets any worse, though after I refitted the shield after taking the photos last night it hasn't made a sound - so it'll probably do for now. It looks like sh*te, but...

Re: Yet another heat shield thread

Thanks Robot - fitted the shield in about 5 mins flat last night and makes a big difference, couple with the exhaust wrap it's bought down the temperature under the bonnet even further - plus it looks great 'cos its all shiny and new!!!!

Re: Yet another heat shield thread

Yup - jacked the front of the car up and used a pair of mole grips.......... totally destroyed the nut getting it off but replaced it with an 8mm steel-lock nut. Careful though, I slipped and almost shoved the mole grips through the radiator.........

If you pay for the flight's I'll pop over and give you a hand!!!!
