New Mesh for Fairings

I read about a billion posts yesterday and in one of them someone mentioned that there is a wire 'mesh' with larger holes that is available to replace the stock stuff in the fairings that will allow more air to escape and help with the overheating. I can't find any information on it, and now I can't even find the post that mentioned it !! I've got an '08 F4 312R and its got the 2 Muzzy fans, an auxiliary fan, all three fane are on an over-ride switch so I can turn them on at will, coolant is distilled water and water wetter. All the above has helped a lot, but temp still gets to blinking at me on occasion. Only way I can reliably get the thing not to overheat in the Texas summer is if I remove the fairings. Thought I'd give the new mesh a try. Any info would be helpful. Thanks.

I think you would have to make your own.

Wire mesh with larger holes for better air flow ? Skip the mesh at all and You will have the maximum air flow possible.

It's not the air flow in, it's the air flow out. That's why removing the fairings solves your problem. You've done all you can to suck as much air in, but nothing to get it out. On the early F4s there was no mesh on the exit areas. That came later. I think even if you removed the mesh, it would still not be enough. Some forum members have modified the side fairings for increased air flow. I believe the link that was posted will show you what they look like.

Any advice on how to remove the stock mesh without tearing up the plastic?

It is attached with some very sticky double back tape. Peel it away with a razor blade then clean any residue with laquer thinner. I don't have any panels here to look at, none of mine have the mesh, but that's how I remember it.

I'll give it a try. If removing the mesh can bring temp down 3-4 degrees at top end it will help. Thanks for your help.

My mesh isn't attached with double sided sticky tape but a hot silicone glue which will also cut away with a knife. I'm not sure what to use to refit them as intend removing mine when I have my panels painted....

.....and I think the fairings look ugly with no mesh fitted, just my opinion
