Default Starter heat soak

This is probably a worn out topic, but I can't seem to find much in the archives (I could just be ignorant/ lazy/ both) only one I could find is relating to the starter wrap.

Was there any heat shield that may have been a later add on to help with this issue? Pictures of yours if you found or made one? The starter is just so close to the exhaust pipe after the manifolds connect. Seems like a poor design when you have heat coming in on both sides.

The wrap idea seems sound, but like an emergency mylar blanket, I feel like it would trap heat when it did get in and just cause a longer period till you could start.

I haven't yet cleaned all the connections so I know that will be mentioned. Just seems like a good bit of extra insurance.
