well... normally is custom made i think... cos de engine accessories on each engine bay is diff....

u can use aluminium sheets to make... then de edges cover with rubber strips to hide de sharp edges.... u may add a layer of superlon for better heat shielding...

some cheaper DIY method is to use de sun shade.. but it is soft.. u have to find something to hold it in place... B)

de air column in de middle acts as heatproofing... same concept as polystyrene foam. B)

yep.. u wan durability. still aluminium is better.. if u can find ppl to make de carbon fibre heatshield lagi good... damn light n damn durable.. but too expensive for normal car usage... :P

if u use de plastic board we mentioned...it will harden over time due to de heat in de engine.... when it gets hard... it will chip like biskut.. :lol: dat normallt takes bout 2-3 years to happen... if got exposed to sun.. very fast will get hard...

This is mine. Dual layer aluminum sheets + superlon... almost completely shields the filter from the engine, since bonnet touches and presses down the superlon, and the underside is also sealed by superlon. :)

I made it by attaching superlon to a aluminum sheet using metal wires, then bending and folding superlon to fit the compartment. The other side of the shield has no aluminum...

good idea...so logically the heat won't reach the other side of heat shield when the bonnet is closed...nice ;)
