    Lower stone guard mesh

    Hi all :158:

    I fitted a radiator guard the other day and was thinking about the space below in front of the exhaust pipes.

    I don't know if is just me but whatever route I decide to take I seem to end up going through fresh roadworks with nice fresh/sticky tar in our summer heat :110:  seems like a lot around at the moment anyway.

    Those flicked up stones make a mess and get into some unwanted places etc
    Anyway I made a lower stone guard out of the same mesh as the radiator guard and it was a simple job turned out ok. :152:

    Cheers

    Nice work Clarky, how did you fix the mesh to the plastic surround?

    I did the same a few years back. Bent the mesh around the edges of the plastic and then used hot melt glue gun. Worked a treat.  :169:
    It wasn't me !!

    Hi Gavj

    I cut and trimmed the mesh to size and then formed and shaped the mesh to fit nice and snug up in the channel at the back of the plastic frame (the aluminum mesh is really malleable )

    The mesh goes up / shaped to go up around the top mounting points and gets sandwiched between the plastic and faring bracket when bolted back on ,  and then I carried the mesh down to a sort of point at the bottom where it is cable tied on to the bottom bracket on the plastic frame, I drilled two small holes in the bottom bracket to take the cable ties which are not visible at all.

    So its fixed in three places and shaped which makes it very rigid, not that it has any load on it or anything. but also easily removed if you want and no major modifying or drilling or any visual mounting screws etc.

    It actually looks like its factory fitted,  :002:

    Cheers

    Just did a search online for rad guard and R&G radiator guard - seems like there are no longer any US sellers with stock!

    I ended up getting the radiator guard from RADGUARD in Australia they had it in stock and only took 4 days to get here which was quite impressive and very easy to fit.     https://www.radguard.com.au/

    Yea the only other I think I found was R&G USA
