    Heat shield for the Z18 XE? Hmmm, didn't know there was one available?

    Polished battery covers, mine came with double sided tape but decided to
    use a bit of lino flooring to mask the insides, not had any problems since.
    Oh, I did see some fireworks when i tried test fitting it BANG! lol!

    i had trouble with the heatshield - but i was putting it on wrongly - the coolent pipe needs to come off then the heat shield goes on - then the coolent line back on to to hold it all in on the z20
