Stock Exhaust Heat Shields
So, my pipes have a nice coating of surface rust (po had it sitting for quite some time). It cleans up nicely with a wire brush and drill; but, those damn heat shields are welded on! seems pretty cheesy to me.
Anyway, any tips on cleaning the pipes and getting the shields off, then back on?? I'm guessing they'd have to be cut off with a dremel, and then tacked back on with a TIG? Another option would be to take them off, and leave them off? Or, header wrap them?? I wonder how that looks? worse?
