I have a reliable source that each car had a different version.. All were just made for the car and were more a custom part..

I was thinking the same thing.
Might want to consider a double walled version to make sure you don't get burned.
Also so fresh air ducted through that new cavity.

I think you all are trying to make this more complicated than it needs to be. If the metal does get hot, just add some heat wrap to the outside and maybe inside or wrap the lines, or both. The heat wrap that is used for exhaust is cheap and effective.

16’ of 2” exhaust wrap - $10 at walmart

It looks kind of big. If it was more form fitting I would be in for one. It would help keep dirt out. I have the heat blanket around my lines now from PMS.

I'd be in for one, but like Steve says it would be nice if it were a bit more form fitting.

Both of my AN oil lines feed into one big heat shield sock as they go through the passenger compartment footwell.

I've never felt any real heat from that area.

I'd be interested in this if you perfect it, but an exterior shield for road grime and water would be another part idea (?)

I know it looks big but it actually is pretty small compared to what I started with. Its only 2.5" thick all the way around the radius of the inner wheel well and 4" tall.. Form fitting is the interesting thing as the lines stack on top of eachother and are about 1.5" in diameter it allows for some heat wrap as you say.. I may shrink it a bit more but the bump out that it bolts to is about 2.5" as well..

Thanks Ben!! It’s probably just the picture. Showing one installed would be better. I would also be interested in one.

Shoot, sorry Ben, should have thought of you when we had to fabricate one for Brutus the 916 (now in the Peterson Museum in LA)
Anyway we took the one out of our 916 and copied it. It looks MUCH different than the one you made, and maybe we could arrange something so that you could copy the original. It also has a built in pedal board clamp!

I am pretty sure Kent is either working on or soon to be working on one of these for my car. I definitely want the lines covered and protected as well as sealing the exterior from the interior where the lines enter the cabin. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beer3.gif)
