Fuel Tank Heat Shield

Looking to replace the gas tank heat shield on my NAS, part ESR2756G. Because I'm a cheapf*ck I don't want to spend $50 on a new shield. Any alternatives or cheap sources?

Look through Summit Racing for products made by DEI, they make heat shield products of all types. Maybe they have something that can work or you can modify to work.

There is also a company in the UK that is making heatshields as well.

While installing the NRP exhaust I realized there was a hole rubbed through the fuel tank heat shield. At some point the elbow had gotten pushed aft and contacted the shield.
I too, am cheap.
So I removed the shield and copied it from a piece of .050 aluminum and reinstalled both on the tank. I think it'll work as well if not better than the factory part. And it cost nothing.
