Default What heat shield is this?

Came with my Miata when I bought it. Doesn't look like it was custom made, but I'm not sure. Anyone know?

First pic is how it mounts
second pic is off the car.

Some people are pretty good fabricators, could be a one off.

It looks like a copy of the "Bowser" I got from FM. It looks home made to me.

I had to REALLY modify my FM heatshield to fit my Tony Pipe. No biggie though, a drillbit and a couple of minutes later and it fit perfectly.

Looks like a piece of light sheetmetal bent out on the guys workbench. I like it... will do one like that myself. It's definitely DIY!
