You could try shaping some thin aluminium (something quite plyable, but thick enough to contain the heat), and pop rivet a section to the bumper area.
I think there is heat shielding available from Demon Tweeks.

1-2mm thick maybe? Something as thick (or slightly thinner )as car body aluminium I would be go for and try out.

Find a solid object that is pretty similar in curvature to that section of the bumper, and work with a dolly/hammer (panel beating tools) and try to mould the metal into that shape... ?
