Generally speaking, when I use any parts for muffler I use 1618, as it is good up to 250 deg.F......or in the case of header heat shields.....Max-hte.....
I have no clue how hot the dr's muffler get's.... But just be on the look out when you make parts for exhausts systems....
I have been thinking about this quite a bit, but from the temp readings that I have taken from the shroud, it looks to stay below 110 f.

I'm making a mold of the part, so if we need to go back at make another one again with different epoxy, then that's what we'll do. No worries.

Earling, could you elaborate on your epoxy rub-in process? How do you apply the epoxy, rag, sponge, brush, finger, etc? What steps do you take to apply the epoxy.

Thanks again!
