I attend alot of car shows locally and while I do win I know my weak point in the engine bay. I believe the biggest problem is my heat shield. What can I do with this. No, I have no money to get a header so don't say that. Should I sand it down and try to paint it with some high temp. stuff??

Any suggestions or cheap tricks to clean up the engine bay.

FYI - Its a 4 cyl. with a K&N Short Ram intake. Thats all.

That's what I did. Just sand out the rust, because you most likely have them in and around the bolts. I sanded and painted them w/ high temp paint from Duplicolor. Same color, silver. Looked a lot cleaner. I used a rotary/dremel to get sand away the rust. If you really have some extra money, you should have it sandblasted and get it powdercoated.

Paint it and then one day before you show, put one fresh coat on it, let it dry over night and install it at the car show while getting the car cleaned up.
