    It certainly looks as though something is needed to protect the radiator, its just a case of choosing the right mesh, too smaller a mesh and you starve the radiator of cooling air, too large a mesh and road chippings could get through so its a compromise really, ill
    see what is available.
    I do have an electric fan with adjustable setting which may help.

    I was going to say the same (22 years) but thought better of it - didn't want to tempt fate!!
    Too many idiots, not enough villages!

    Well mine also ran for years with no problems, so I might not bother unless I do have problems.

    I put my original Griffin rad in my car in 1990 or thereabouts and it ran without mesh until 2018 when I replaced it with a lovely new Afco. First trip out I got a stick in to the fins!! Luckily not through a core but it made a mess. Hence I now have mesh!!
