Melting battery cables

I installed RA manifolds on my '67 GTO 400 and I've had problems with the battery cable to the starter melting because it's so close to the exhaust manifold. I've re-routed the cable further away from the manifold and installed a heat shield around the starter and battery cable, but the cable is still melting close to where it connects to the solenoid.

What solutions to this problem has anyone found?
