i resemble that remark.
use hardware cloth (at any home supply place) $5 buys enough for your tmic and radiator. i tripled over my tmic. air flow is not an issue. i clean when anough bugs/rocks/debris shows. paint the radiator screen flat black and no one will know its there. andrew at andrew tech endorses this. only noobs think no protection is safe
