Has anyone had any experience with using heat shields in the SR20? Since the dash on ours is one of the ones which warped, we would like to prevent this in the future after the new one is installed.
We are having a debate over whether to buy custom heat shields or a cockpit canopy. Since our plane is hangared most of the time we really don’t need a full canopy. Heat shields should certainly serve the purpose. However, installing heat shields means putting VELCRO around all the windows to secure the heat shield. My view of this is not too pleasant. It’s such a nice, smooth and contemporary interior that I fear putting VELCRO around the windows will really make it look tacky. Sort of amateurish. Does anyone have any heat shield (or canopy) experience they would like to share?
