Top tip is don't use hole punched sheet at speed it effectively becomes an air brake and will fight against it's mounting(s) till it breaks it, google stainless 'pulled sheer mesh' it's the stuff that plasters use to fill holes.

I'm using a sheet that came from a halfauds type shop from the look of it. Got it for nothing from my mate

If you are as tight as me you may give this a go http://www.wickes.co.uk/Wickes-Galvanised-Metal-Mesh-Lath-2500x700mm/p/104089?CAWELAID=120135120000007050&CAGPSPN=pla&utm _source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=&utm_campai gn=Product+Listing+Ads&tmcampid=104&tmad=c&tmplace ref=&tmcustom=mkwid|W5fPyZGt_dc|pcrid|7531858372|& gclid=CjwKEAjwl7ieBRCK2rCtqcCS7jESJACZKQFKFC5zG2aJ N9WbGfnh_KM0u731-Ex1Nj1sSD7N_zOrsBoCwojw_wcB

Cheaper than chips but would need painting so it's not for everybody.

I found a 500 x 500 piece of the stuff they use on Jags/Caddilacs and it did the main nosecode gap and the oil filter gap on my car.

More expensive and a bitch to work with but it was worth it for me. Also IVA were impressed with it while giving it a prod.

Cheers

They're all good options but I like that stot, quality stuff. Actually have you any left I can buy from you? :-)

I'm sorry to high jack this thread for a related question :o .
I have bought the same kind of grid as David if I refer to the picture on the link, but now, I'm wondering how to attach it to the nose cone?
I thought about cutting it larger than the nose cone hole, folding the edges, and glue them to the inside of the edge/lip of the nose cone with (Sikaflex). would this be acceptable? How did you guys attached yours?
Thanks :)

I used industrial epoxy on the recommendation of east coast fibreglass in South Shields. I went in to buy some fibreglass and they recommended this...

It's very sticky!

Chris, I have looked in my garage and there isn't enough left for a grill as I had a couple of failed attempts first.
