Default Nosecone Mesh

Hi,
What's the best type of mesh to use for the nose.
I plan to form it and then get it powder coated black....

I used some of this cbs online black mesh which formed really easily around the nose cone and keeps the car (water and oil rad) very cool. Paint never came off it when being bashed into shape. ]

I was given some Ripspeed Mesh by my neighbour who's son used to work for us. It's free, it's getting used!
