In reply to # 3290753 by whannifan81 I've been reading through a ton of posts and am in need of a heat shield for my 77 midget with the ZS carb set up. I live in DC and do not have a metal shop. The yield shield you made here with the dissipation air holes looks fantastic. Could I buy one from you?

Got your PM, check your email soon. Perfect timing with the school year coming to an end.

Sean, all I can say is wow!
Your heat shield arrived today and it is an absolute masterpiece.
The care and craftsmanship that went into this piece is impressive.
The heat resistant material on the bottom is an amazing touch.
If anyone is in need of this item (if not now, you will one day!) give Sean a text and order one.
I almost DONT want yo put it on my car, it is that nice!
Damn! Great job Sean!
Thanks again,
Anthony S.

Any luck on getting a heat shield? I know this is an old post but my original shield is broken.

Kurtis, look up at the old posts in this thread.
You will find the name of the member who makes these.
I bought one and it is awesome.
Extremely well made.

Thanks Anthony, I did try PM'ing him but have never gotten a response. Wondering if he is still active or not.. I do love the one he made you. Looks sweet and like it would work good for the original design.

Kurtis, keep trying.
It took quite some time for him to respond and eventually get one to me.
Funny thing is, my original heat shield is still in great shape!!
I bought one of these replacements because it was so well made and looked indestructible.
Murphy’s law, of course, dictates that my original will last indefinitely because I have a replacement.

Nice workmanship. Lot nicer than a handmade one out of Stainless Steel I made. Maurice

Hi folks, sorry I never got back to some of you about these heat shields. It was an awesome year outside of the MG world and I had to take a break from the forums and tinkering. I got engaged in the spring, helped coach our XC team to win states and travel to nationals, and now that we’re married I can finally get back to working on my Midget and helping people with theirs. Unfortunately I don’t have much time to get to our family shop to run off the blanks, but I was finally able to make that happen today. I also need to order the hardware I provide to make installation easier and more of the heat barrier material I adhere to the bottoms.

I just sent out PM’s to everyone who’s messaged me since April to see if they’re still interested. If anyone would like them, PM me and I can tell you more.
