    subject says it. I have decided to bedliner the inside and outside of my blazer. But my flowmasters get the floor hot as /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif. i was worried about it messing up the liner. I could bake cookies under my driver seat easily .so what kind of heat shield can i put over them or somewhere. I can get header wrap for the headers but what about the mufflers?

    thanks /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I used some sheet metal, make them a little bigger than the width of the muffler. Attach them to the floorpan, or frame, leaving about a 1" airgap between the sheetmetal/muffler, and the same 1" airgap, between the floorpan/sheetmetal.

    Make's alot of difference in transffered heat to the cab/box area. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    thought about that but wasnt sure how much it would help. i know it helps keep it down a little, i also wasnt sure how long it would last on the underside of the trruck
