Made the heat shield last night

First I whittled out the mandrel from a chunk of maple that mini b gave me. Just eye-balled the general shape and sculpted it till it looked right . Next I grabbed a chunk of 1.5mm aluminum and started hammering it around the mandrel. After a good amount of sweat and a little sand and polish I came up with this . Really fills in the area where the pipe looked to small.
