How to join the head shield sections?

Hello,

I am very glad to find this post. Looks like a very interesting solution. I would like to do the same job in my S60 and i am wondering what did you apply to join the sections. In your pictures, it seems like a gray material or a kind of gray glue.

Thank you,

Bryan

Thanks dougy! I needed a solution for my '98 V70R... had to pull all the OE heatshield away from the firewall due to fitment restrictions for my new FPR and fuel surge tank!

Oh. This is very interesting. Did you notice anything significant?

thank you Koreanboy827... without heat-shield it is hot inside and with this one on there is no heat inside of the cabin.

why would you if you have your original cloth heat shield there... you would not feel any heat on the inside..once it starts to fall apart and look like crap then you might.


Dougy, out of interest, have you noticed a difference in heat in the cabin / or for anywhere that matters after doing this ?
it is comparable to stock but NO cloth material and in comparison to with or without heat-shield...without any heat-shield it is hot inside and with this one , there is no heat inside of the cabin.

Plus the added benefits that if something flammable were to spray or leak onto this it won't soak up a bunch of liquid which could be a problem if it were a flammable fluid.
