    Thumbs up Radiator guard mod

    Hi.
    I'm a newbie to forum and this is my first post so thought I would make it useful.

    I've been looking at rad guards on flee bay for a while now
    They look good and aren't a bad price. About 80
    But I'm tight and prefer to make things myself.
    So I purchased a length of mesh (1000mm400mm)
    7 bargain!
    Here is a step by step guide (ish) and pictures of the finished project.

    Firstly I removed the necessary trim, rad protectors, rad skirt and the belly pan fairing.
    Measured the radiators and cut out the mesh, on the main radiator i used 6 points to screw it down, two up top, two at bottom and one even side of the rad.

    Same with the bottom two rads. But this time I only used to fixing points, one either side.

    All in all it took about an hour. Reasonably easier job to do. And a lot cheaper. Obviously doesn't look as good as a 80 set but for what it is I think it does the job!
