The later bikes dropped those cooling fins anyways. To be fair they added an oil cooler but I know a lot of people that ditched the oil cooler on their r100 many miles ago with no issues.
Sorry I don't have more pictures of the plates. I welded some plates under the plates that are clamped between the engine and the frame. Than bolted the bash plate onto those plates.
The bash plate is 4 mm free from the sump. And it still is after landing the bike on the bash plate trying to jump 70cm thick tree trunks. So far I have no problems with overheating.
