Would one really want to wrap the transmission in an insulating layer, trapping heat in?

Just askin'.

Was used with the U.S. cars with the cat. converter 76? to 80. I put them in all of my V-8 cars to stop some of the heat with the exhaust on the drivers side.

So is that in #1 asbestos or made of metal?It looks too shiny to be what I have on my GT but that could just be because the outside is covered in grunge. That one appears to be symmetrical whereas mine's only covering the passenger underside of the tunnel.

Mmm looking at the ebay link and again the pic in #1 I can see that that's what I've got - maybe mine's a lot cleaner on the outside and looks like those. I wonder why they didn't make it full size and why it's called a gearbox guard at least by the seller who won't ship outside UK.

I bought one of these in the spring. Looking to fit at the end of the year, does anyone know if it can be manipulated into place without dropping the transmission?

No one answered you Andy so I'll apply logic based on mine - No. It's fixed by some sort of rivet that I don't think penetrate the inside; I can't tell for sure because mostly my inside is covered by Dynamat courtesy of a PO except on the top of the tunnel and I see no protrusions. Even if you don't replicate the Factory fixing how are you going to secure it with the gearbox in the way?
