JoePA, don't overlook the required clearance for the vertical stovepipe if you plan on a top exit. I needed to go with double wall SS to keep those clearances. I've got the exact rear heat shield that CapCoaler posted pictures of but had to hold clearance from the DWSS to 10". That placed the shield for the back of the stove at 10.5" and the stove pipe shield, which is part of the stove's shield, at 9.5" from the wall. The wall stays cool behind the stove but is warmest just behind the DWSS just above the shield.
