'05 Dutch Star Newmar

I have a ongoing problem 05 Newmar Dutch star Freightliner frame cat C7 350 everything fine with motor can't seem to keep heat shield plates they fall off this would be the plate between bottom of transmission and exhaust pipe assuming to stop heat from touching the underneath of tranny
I can go 10,000 miles with one plate I have 52,000 and it vibrates off just wondering if IM the only one Freightliner says they don't make the plate anymore go to sheet metal shop get one made.
Wondering do I Mickey mouse something myself. Any advise would be appreciated

Just random thoughts. If the plate was really needed I would think that it would still be available. If you are worried about the heat getting to your Allison, Hot rod suppliers have insulating material to wrap around the exhaust pipe.

Have a nice day - DArrel
