There used to be a miata with one, but for the life of me can't remember who it was...(I do remember it was on a cardomain site)

I've never seen an old license plate as a heat shield! That is neat.

Did you read the thread?

Thread so old no-one uses heat shelds anymore.

What changed between "heat shields are ok, blankets are better." To "blankets are terrible, heat sheilds arent great."

Heatshields are ok for blocking heat off from spreading further, blankets or wraps work for a diffrent purpose, they do keep heat from spreading yes. There intention is to keep heat in the turbine and increase spool time.

But I would still have a blanket over a shield. But FREE>100 Dollars any day!!!

Better pick, this ia just a mock up plate, I have nicer plate to go on.

What do you do about the back side which on our cars would be melting the heater lines? what do you do? Put the pan top on there?

HAHA, I would wrap them them with the heat sleeves. They work really well or just get silicone lines.
