If you paint them with automotive header or exhaust manifold paint and properly cure it in an oven, it will probably hold up for a while.

thats what I was thinking Bobby M.. if it doesn't oh well, I am just out the couple bucks for a can of paint. The more I think about it though, I am going to go stainless down the road just for the cool guy points.

I remember your thread and searched for it but couldn't find it.

What is the distance from the burner tops to the top of your shields? How does it work?

Again, Great looking rig.

Sorry it is a piece of crap isn't it . I think my burners are at 5.5 inches and they work great.
I'm going to build a single tier two pump rims system next month and use the same design.

I do powder coating and recommend against it for the shields. Regular PC will only get you to 600 degrees and only for small shots. High temp PC's max out @ 1200. You could have them ceramic coated. It's applied as a liquid and cured in an oven. It's able to handle automotive headers so it should handle the temps you'll see.
Personally I vote for bare metal.

Strong work. The banjos are a real PITA to mount and create heat shields for. You made this look easy!

Hi Espi,

Very nice job. I just picked up my single tier from the welder and need to fabricate a set of these, also.

I am going to use stainless and was wondering if you found the 22 gauge sheet to be the right thickness?

I'll be mounting them on the following burner brackets:

22 ga is pretty thin I would use 16 ga.
