Tried something a little different for a heat shield. Used 1/8" plexi and heat molded 2 pieces that fit together around the base of the filter. I will use a black clamp around the circumferance of the shield to hold it in place so it will match the black filter base. Going for the "nearly invisible" look with this one.
. The clamp isn't shown in the picture because I didn't happen to have the one I want and suffice it to say the temporary clamp I'm now using wouldn't look to hot in the picture.
