    Default Duel exhaust - where to get a right hand exhaust heat shield

    I may be upgrading from a single exhaust to a duel exhaust. I looked opposite my current exhaust and there are the additional hangers for the right hand back box and threads for the heatshield. I've been looking in eBay and google to find the heat shield but to no avail. Does anyone know where I can get one online or can some one give me the part number to help with my search. If all fails I'll pay a visit to Vauxhall.

    why bother with something that will rattle and get pulled off sooner or later

    common problem on most cars is a rattling heat shield take it to the garage and the take it off

    Surely it's there for a purpose? I noticed the fuel filler neck isn't that gar away. Would it not deflect the heaT from that?

    i reckon i would want one if i was doing that conversion, they can't cost too much from the stealers though... somebody must have priced one up..
