Does anyone have a heat-shield rattle and about 2500 when the car is cold?
My heat-shields seem fine.

No Rattles here on this end, Well with the Bullitt that is :badgrin: :badgrin: :badgrin:

Solid as a Rock !!!!!!!!!!

Mine has some kind of slight rattle when the engine is cold. It goes away as soon as the oil works its way through the engine. I am at 3600 miles. All my bucking and jumping off hills during the first few hundred miles probably loosened something up. :rolleyes:
I took mine out for a spin today and noticed a rattle as well. It also seemed to go away once the car warmed up.

Where on the car are these shields?
Being attached-to something that by its very nature gets blazin' hot (the cats) - I'd imagine that the shield's mounting would HAVE to be just a bit loose - otherwise expansion and contraction would break the mounting eventually.

That said, a loud, blatant "rattle" is something I'd prolly get fixed. A minor intermittent buzz when the car is cold is nothing, really.
