The sheild part is a thin piece of lexan (like plexi). I found aluminum tape that came with insulating foam type stuff on the one side. (it'* a few mm thick) I covered the lexan with that then covered the aluminum/foam stuff with plain aluminum tape.
The rubber is an old bike tube. And the sheild is wedged between the radiator and one of the 10mm bolts that hold the fender on.
Thanks for the heads up on the mani'*. The sooner the better. i need $$.
