If you want the mesh, you can have mine for a tenner. You'll need something to cover up the front aperture for sva. pm me if interested.

You can also buy the same mesh from B&Q a lot cheaper. :D

If the mesh is too fine as well as looking CRAP :twisted: it can cause your engine to over heat as it reduces the flow of air through the radiator. :(

General concensus seems to be don't do the mesh then.

I'd have to disagree, if mesh is good enough for Bentley and Jaguar its good enough for me.....


Although I think you do need a more open mesh than the very fine type that is available in the "bling and air freshener" shops.

Cheers,

That doesnt look to bad, but on the other hand, mine (europa) looks gash!

I have to say tho', that one mod I keep meaning to do but have not yet got around to, is to put some kind of mesh in front of the rad (but not over the nose) to protect it against flying stones. Judging by the dents it takes some hits.......had to change the oil cooler a year or two back as well.

Mind you, if you drive like a girly you should be alright...........:twisted:

ALexB - spray it black and it would look better.

I've got mesh in the nose section, B&Q do some stuff that has diamond shaped holes, maybe 5x8mm in size. They do it in ali and steel, I used ali and sprayed it black.

It's weird but after it was sprayed it became more "see-through"

I might even run two lots of the stuff, one right in the nose and a second piece 50mm in front of the rad. This may seem OTT but brass rads are not very strong and it's a pain in the bum to change due to it being holed (Ask Noel).

I was running the stuff that Pilgrim supply (also availble in B&Q) but it looked too restrictive to keep my 4.6 lump cool.

The stuff from Halfauds ripspeed section looked the same as the B&Q stuff except the sheet is not really wide enough and is way too long and is expensive!
