Default greddy heat shield

bought the greddy bowser heat shield from flyin miata and i thought i would bolt it on tonight well all the holes line up kinda but the heatshield sits on the metal things coming off the brake resovoir and it vibrates the brake and clutch pedal anyone have an easy fix besides cutting or bending the heat shield???

What metal things? The brake lines?
Cut and bend the heatshield, pansy.

I had to just bend the brake/clutch lines slightly, it did not hit anything else.

I removed the bracket you speak of and let the brake proportioning valve be supported by the brake lines themselves. It's been fine for many thousands of miles that way.
