All great ideas. The remote solenoid works.

Heat shields can be made easily from aluminum that comes in rolls for roof shingle flashing, etc.
Make a shield on the header itself and install with hose clamps,
Make another for the starter installed with a big hose clamp,

Cool air can pass between them and around the starter for decent cooling.
