I have found a really good source for wire mesh for fuel injection/ carburettor screening and radiator grills. The website is www.themeshcompany.com. They supply a wide range of mesh sizes in small quantities (no minimum order) at reasonable cost. I bought some 80 grade and 130 grade - the 80 is probably a bit course and inflexible for intake screening but would be fine for radiators, the 130 is about right for screening (maybe a slightly coarser weave would be OK too) and is easy to mould to shape. I'm hoping to show the results in a posting this weekend about my proxy Cooper T81.
In looking for aluminium rod/wire I came across this company http://www.wires..co.uk who provide a range of diameters of wire which would be good for exhausts.
I don't know if this is helpful or not, but I found 6 permanent coffee filters on sale for $3.00 each. The filters have 3 sections each of gold colored very fine mesh about 4 inches by 2 inches. so for $12.00 I ended up with about 6 feet by 2 inches of this mesh. It should last a long time , and it bends nicely and looks good. It will take paint if you prefer silver or black. Bob
