I've already gotten some standard rectangular pieces from Heat Shield Products. I made some aluminum angles to fasten to the upper row of flange bolts. The shields will screw to them and be formed similar to the following pics.
Takes me back to my raw steel headers and melted plenum experience. Ceramic coating and no shields here, no melted plenums.

Yours looks/sounds AWESOME!

Mine are coated with an aerospace grade mix. I don't care what is on them - when I'm hammering 20-40 minute lapping sessions they will be too hot for wire looms, clutch/brake lines or plastic parts anywhere near them. I also kept the OEM plug boot shields because they work.

Heat shield progress photos. I'm using easily formable aluminum sheet before cutting on the good stuff.

First oil change at 800 miles. Builder is happy, so that makes me happy! WIX filter is built like a ballistic missile cruiser and is what most NASCAR teams are running these days. I think NAPA Gold is rebadged WIX. Dyno day soon...
