The Heat Shield (Jaguar C.6700) of my 1954 XK 120 OTS SE is missing the insulation material, so I will have to make something myself.
Question 1: is this (basically) the same (originally asbestos) material as Jaguar used for the floors to deal with the heat of the exhausts? If so, I will use a mineral replacement for the asbestos (like I already did for my XK 140).
Question 2: I see 4 little holes in the steel heat shield. Does the original construction use the special “bifurgated” rivets (Jaguar BD.524/7) for holding the insulation to the steel heat shield (like with the XK 140 floors)?
Question 3: I read that some members still have (heat generated) brake cylinder problems. Has anybody tried an additional sheet of anodized aluminium on top of the “asbestos”, acting as an extra IR refelective shield to reduce the heat transmission?
