heat shield

I had a case of vapor lock the other day...lucky me, I was far away from home and it was late. next day I spent the day rerouting fuel lines away from heat sources. I think I did a fairly good job of it, then when I was going to bed I realized something...one of my pipes runs within 1-3" of the front fuel tank. Duh. Got a fuel heater there don't I? So I'm wondering if I can affix some aluminum flashing or something to the tank wall to deflect the heat, and if this would be sufficient. Thoughts on how to accomplish this (cheaply- I just dumped a fair wad of cash on the rebuild)? thanks!
(yes, an inline electric backup pump is in the plans)

Stainless works better but any sheet of metal between the tank and exhaust will work as a heat shield.
