Robert-
Need a little more detail. What size are you looking for? Is it for a muffler or exhaust pipe? Or?

It's little hard to find one just exactly as you need it or can you modify a shield or build one from scratch?

I tried a number of places and this one seemed to have an assortment:

I'm not really sure where I got the shield but I had to modify it to fit my needs.

I'll do a little more searching to see it I can find any more sources. I vaguely remember I found a place that sells muffler shields for semi trucks.

Cheers,
Roy

If you can do some fabbing these folks have a great selection of metal.

Have you considered rolling your own out of perforated sheet metal?

A major supplier in my area has 24" x 48" sheets in 16 gauge plain steel for $64. The holes are staggered 3/8" on 9/16" centers. You could have a local sheet metal shop roll it, make some brackets yourself, apply some high temp, rattle can paint, and probably spend less than $200.

It's a thought anyway.

Cheers,

Header wrap is another option and probably the easiest, most cost effective, and keeps the exhaust from looking bigger than it is with shields that still get hot.

Depending on the size you need - there are some odd options around. I found a Murray mower shield on eBay. Brackets were found there too.
Oops - Walker…

I used this one & made brackets to hold it on with hose clamps:

I picked one up directly from Caterham-worked out well.
