Default Altinator shroud/cover,

Went back to check altinator like you do !! Boom,boom,
I was less than impressed with what I did while drunk!!
So spent last 3 days trying to improve it, embarrassed,ly,
So with noticing several altinator bracket fails for unexplainable reasons I'm looking hard at this,
I think I'm happy , but just about to add a outer wrap around
Strap from the outside of the semi slotted adjust bar to the bottom swivel point ,
It will run around the front of altinator following its shape,
Anyway?
I want to make a thin water sheald to simply attach to that
Downward bar ,
Why don't altinator seem to ever be shealded in any way?

I have a shield to one side of the alternator to protect it from heat from the exhaust manifold. I wouldn't want to shield it too much as they need air to keep them cool
