Factory Exhaust Heat Shield

Post by smiley » Sun Jun 19, 2016 6:10 pm

Hey everyone.

Just wondering if anyone has some pictures of the factory heat shield that goes above the muffler on a Type 4 Engine in a late bay.

I don't have one and am thinking of making one while the engine is out to fit up.

Any pictures or descriptions would be great.

The `72-`78 one is slightly longer at the "notched" end than the `79; the 411/412 version is the length of the `72-`78 Bus but with no notch.
