As above can you still get the turbo/exhaust manifold heatsheild cover? I know back in the day when I owned one of these cars somebody used to make these heatsheilds.
I hope you can help.

Thanks. Lee.

Thanks Craig, the original ones I remember were longer, as you say, I don't think it's gonna do much really,probably a waste then Craig.

At the bridge, with Horatius.
I got a new old stock heatshield for my 820 turbo which is designed to protect the alternator from the turbo/exhaust heat.
True, they do look like asbestos in their construction but I think it's actually grp. Anyway, I don't plan on cutting it up to find out if it's not grp but asbestos.

Perhaps the paintwork on the zr's bonnet isn't quite as up to it. Needs something to keep the heat on the pipework over there!
