TR5/TR250 Aerodynamic Effects

So I get back from my 1200 mile round trip to Road America for the vintage races and notice this:





Apparently the combination of rain and air made my radiator shroud baffles quite curvy--don't know if the originals did that?

Fun picture of a nice GT6 that was there, along with one of my favorite muscle cars, 69 Mach 1:

Do TR250s not have the same sort of radiator shroud as TR4s? I don't recognize those side pieces.

No the 250's had the side pieces.

Yes, I considered buying or making a TR4 type shroud, but ended up doing the original type side pieces. The car cools very well, even with the curved boards. I was at the middle of the gauge between the two dots (180?) the whole trip, even in traffic, at speed, and occasional 90 degree weather.
