Default Aw71 and downpipe clearance

I had rubber lines for for my trans. coolant which I know is asking for trouble. So I ordered some 3/8 steel line and bought a decent tubing bender. The front line isnt to bad on clearance with the d.p. but the back line which I assume is the return line is close no matter what I try and do. My only option that I can see is to lower the exhuast for more clearance which I hate to do. So Im asking what are you guys doing for clearance? My exhaust is 3inch and the tightest area is where the line hooks up to the back fitting. IF you wrap it with some kind of insulation, what are you using? Thanks for any adivise.

You might want to consider wrapping the tubing rather than wrapping the downpipe. Search online flexible heat shield will bring up a variety of products.
