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.

Build cost.... seems to be spending more on tools than car bits at the moment! (they will be handy in the future though).

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.
