    They are very proud of that part. I think I will look into making one or having one made.

    Please, and please pass on how-to photos. I'm sure there are a number of those heat muff parts that are in tough shape and others --who can't afford to part with the Univair price-- who would love to see & learn how to fabricate those two heat muff halves. I was lucky; didn't like it, but I could "afford" it. (With prejudice.)

    I have wondered why some enterprising metal shop hasn't made these two parts from mild stainless; even if it were $100 more than Univair's aluminum parts it would probably last forever.

    I can see doing the straight part but can't figure out how to make the part that goes around the bend to the muffler.
    I don't need one but would be fun trying to make one.

    Maybe you could cut two straight parts at 45 angles and weld them together?

    I was thinking about making it in two halves held together by large hose clamps like the Atlee Dodge muffler shroud. Would make inspections easier I think.
