Getting ready to fit my new downpipe and race cat. Noticed that the heat shield above the cat has a hole clean through it - galvanising has been burnt off. This part for '93 aero is now NLA from SAAB. Any other sources?

Many new cats come with integral heat shields. There is a gap between the outermost wall and the actual cat body.

If your race cat did not you might have to fabricate something, or more of a long-shot try the junkyard.

I believe that they carry early and late.. You will find that usually the Heatshield is Gone on most if not all Older Saabs.. It's a V common failure.. which means Junkyard searching might be Spotty... and it's a LOT of work to replace one.. not a lot of joy in redoing it annually cuz of semi worn out replacements :)

Thanks Basre, I'll give them a try. Didn't fancy lying on my back in a junkyard, when I did finally locate a good one.
