One draw back to the lexan splash guards is the melting you getwhen running dry. I melted mine.

Aluminum is the way to go. Below are pix of my brothers.

Tre runs a ford. Mine started melting when I was running jet hot coated headers. I will be out next year. I am actually pulling the boat apart and getting everything but the hull in the garage. I am adding entrapment and may cut the pod for a popoff.

if you can't find any one in cali, give bergeron engineering in mesa, az a call, that is where i got the one for my daytona, decent price and great product, has been on the boat for about 4yrs and only a very, very small melted spot (about the size of a quarter) and my headers are less than 3 inches off the shield on the sides.
