T3 CV guards and fanbelt protectors.

First, sorry that my personal details photo attachments took up so much space. I thought I had appropriately reduced them but obviously am still learning (I sometimes think my brain was fitted with a decouplier when I recently reached 60) so please moderator reduce them so that I don't hog all the space.
I meant to mention that my T3 Syncro had been fitted with front CV joint guards and a fan belt guard. The  article "clockwise round OZ in a wasserboxer campervan" 
 < www.clubvw.org.au/clockwise_round_oz_in_a_wasserbo.htm>
would have general interest for anyone aspiring to do this and seems to include mention of our German honorary members. I also think my vehicle is the the one met in Broome with 16" wheels as my previous owner spent a lot of time up there. My main point however is the final paragraph, where the writer mentions the constant problem of stones flicking up and shredding the fan belt. Do others experience this problem and is it confined to the main fanbelt rather than powersteering and a/conditioning? The other way to go might be to install some type of mesh to screen out stones. Any thoughts?

Hi Roger,
Is your syncro the ex Dick Roberts van from Perth?
I have not heard of any belt problems with the guards fitted.

Quite right Phill- the meticulous way he had maintained it was a major factor in convincing me to buy it and that it was safe to then drive back across the nullabor. I intend sending them an update on the first anniversary of my ownership.
 I'm lucky enough to be off to the Barossa Valley in it and back down the Coorong in a couple of weeks.
I was enjoying and learning from your site when I was just a T2 owner. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm. Your great photo with the kangaroo brands it as uniquely Australian.

Roger,
I probably have some old photos and diagrams of your syncro if
you are interested. Just send me an email via the link on my web page.
