Welcome.

Yeah, about those wheels.....did you ever think about polishing out the Tom's Racing lettering; those Corvette wheels don't look half bad. Alternatively, perhaps powder coating them would be something to consider. Just a thought....

And here's another; for around your water heater return hose you might look into this:

http://store.summitracing.com/partde...0&autoview=sku

Heat protection for your plug wires, hoses, and more.
Thermo-Tec Thermo-Flex aluminum heat shield sleeves are made from a composite heat shield material with unlimited uses. This composite material provides abrasion resistance, thermal insulation, and physical containment of hoses and wiring. The material is a combination of aluminum, silica, and stainless steel, which provides a sleeving that is flexible, lightweight, and strong. Install these sleeves on wires or hoses by slitting the material, rather than disconnecting the wire or hose ends. Thermo-Flex sleeves can withstand extreme temperatures of 750 degrees. Several sizes are available.

If you don't mind it being silver colored the heat shield tubes are quite economical and they should help that rubber hose next to your downpipe last at least a reasonable amount of time.

i dont think i want to resurface the wheels. i like them how they are. they are a rare wheel, especially on this side of the pacific.
thanks for idea for heat wrapping, but ive already got some still havent wrapped everything i think needs to be though

Well, those wheels certainly are different, and I don't mean that in a bad way. Looking forward to seeing how your car progresses, Paul.
