I broke my after market transmission inspection shield. It's the one that's polycarbonate (or like) and has the drop-down cowl with 4 holes in it to keep the 4L60E trans cooler. It replaced the stock sheet metal shield.

Does anyone still sell these? A forum search proved fruitless.

Please shoot me a PM or email.

Thanks,
Mike

Mike CIA still sells them or did, but as with you I broke mine. $70 down the drain. I built a look a like for a hell of a lot less :)

I pretty much took the broken neil chance unit and layed it over the stock shield. I marked the location of the holes and where the cutout for the scoop was. Used a hole saw for the holes, and a good grinder to cut out the area for the scoop. Got some 18-22 gauge (can't remember) piece of sheet metal. With some craftiness I was able to make a scoop slightly larger than the one they used. Brother in LAw helped weld the thing together. Got a piece of mesh from work so thing couldn't find there way up inside, and was all done :)

I'd just leave it off, personally.
