Master cylinder to header distance and heat

Just trying to plumb my clutch set up into my s-10. Running to clearance issues again (of course) my master cylinder location is only going to give me around a 1.5" between it and the header.

The headers are coated to try get some heat out but will this be enough room? I'm going to run a hydraulic throw out because of my clearance issues under the truck

I have fixed problems like this for little cost in the past by using scraps of thin aluminum fastened to prevent heat from reaching the part that I wanted to protect. Reallllllllly bulletproof is two pieces sandwiched together and separated by a few flat washers to create a dead air space between the two pieces of aluminum. Scroll down through this collage of heat deflectors and see if any of it strikes a fancy for you.

Not sure why I didn't even think heat shield like those. Was thinking a wrap but I can easily build one if them.
