http://www.canvasworks.com

These are custom made by hand. I corresponded with one of the guys there via email and even though they don't have the 350/250 listed on their site they do have the template and can make it. I'm going to be ordering one in the next couple days.

Here's my email from Adam @ CanvasWorks

Hi !@#$%,


We do have the pattern for the '06 IS350 & '06 IS250 as they have the same windshield, although our www.canvasworks.com web site has not been updated with the 2006 applications.


The application you are looking for is pattern #1104. You may call us directly or email me all of your contact and payment information including a day time phone number if you would like to order the HeatShield.


Best regards,


-Adam

We have bought one of these for each car we have purchased since about 1990: http://www.superiorcarcare.net/cusuvsheatsh.html

They are model specific, fit perfectly and are durable if not abused -- the one we had for our 90 LS was worn but still usable after over 13 years of use.

The UVS shield is available from a number of on-line merchants - $49 is the best price I remember seeing.

Default Found it

Canvasworks.com

They make the 'HeatShield' which is what I had on my S2K and is what I want for the IS. About $35

I have a Canvaworks heatshield for my other car and it works wonders. Everything they make is an exact fit for the car. The last time i was on their website, they did not have anything for the 2006 IS though. They usually go for around $35-45. They get from me.

I think the HeatShield is what I have for my Acura. It works great but it tends to sag after a while. I taped a couple of small wood dowels to the back side to stiffen it up. Its good to know where to find one for the IS when I get it.
