Sorry missed this, I used it all up doing my nosecone. I kept checking Ebay for it and eventually a 500 x 500 piece came up at 15 which was a bargain.

Cheers

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.

This is turning into a very expensive thread! No worries I have already enquired on ebay. That epoxy looks like just the job.

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
This is exactly what I did.
Might struggle if I ever need to remove it though

Thanks for the reply and the link David. But I think I will go with the Sikaflex as Skov did.
Thanks for the tip John

For nose cone mesh go to b&q. Yes I know, I was shocked as well ! They have it in the big stores around the tool section. I bought a big sheet for my nose cone for 12 in gold. It was just the ticket to motivate a weekends work on the car. I got the old tiger seal out, & the job is a good un ! Other colours were available, just loved the colour after seeing the Lotus f1 car.

Thanks for the recommendations. Bought this in the end as it was the right size and cheap.

Default different approach

I've constructed the "grill" from a number of shiny stainless steel strips that I bought in the local DIY shop. They are meant for covering the transition of carpet in one room to carpet in another.
Bits of an old tentpole as spacers (hacksawn in an angle) and 3 treaded (M4) rods to hold everything in place in the GRP nosecone.
The pictures aren't very good I' afraid but they show the idea.

Thats a cool idea, though it does remind me a a Gillette Fusion.

Cheers
