That explains why I could never find the heat shield separately. Bit poor to have it riveted on and not available any other way.

Likely be Chinese driveshafts. I was looking for one for mine and ended up getting a good genuine one from USA. They don't tend to give problems though so aftermarket demand is likely to be low -...

Assume it's a 6cylinder you have as that is likely to be most similar to the M. It might be it has some extra strength somewhere, don't think engine mount or wishbone locations will be different on...

I bet it will be like the fuel pump area of the carpet and will have an outline/thinner section where the carpet backing is thinner and is easily cut if required.

Didn't someone try this on the forum? I would be tempted to use some kind of paint stripper to prevent scratching the metal, then polish up with a flapper on a drill with some G10 type stuff.
