Thank you for replies.

Zircotec ceramic coating (in white, of course) comes in at an eye-watering £676.25 and is said to reduce under-bonnet temps by 33%.

Not sure if reservoir will fit other brake MC, sorry.

Whoa £676.25!... I think jet-hot in the US quoted me $250 to have mine done.

My headers and collectors, HPC coated inside and out, including chemical stripping NZD 574, including GST.

Generally we're at the expensive end of the spectrum for anything and everything due to lack of competition.

Right, heatshields!

The E34 has eaten into any spare funds, so any sort of ceramic coating a non-starter. Instead, made up a plinth from a sheet of stainless to attach to the existing heatshield mounts, to this I formed some cool heat shield stuff.

I got the steering box heat shield from an E34 to fit by welding on studs to the ends of the bolts and spacing them out to account for the differing layout of the E34 box. This also provides some protection to the steering knuckle.

Like the M30 system, the Fritz manifold is VERY close indeed to the steering box.

Also made a bracket to fit a decent fire extinguisher under the passenger seat.

Most pleasing!

Fire extinguisher fitted, yes - it's on the passenger side, but it is big enough to be useful and doesn't look too out of place, I hope! Luggage strap to hold it in place to follow.

Well done on the heat shield - looks very neat, also fire extinguisher fits well - are these recommended on M6s?

Personally, I think a fire extinguisher should be standard equipment in all our vintage vehicles. It might be the difference between replacing a few hoses or wires, and disposing of a burnt out shell.
