I got around to making a drip tray to stop any screen washer over-spill getting into the alternator.

The edges were turned up to stop any over-spill going off the side and to add stiffness.

(the last picture has made the shield look smaller due to perspective but it is actually wider than the bottle and slopes back towards the bottle)

Thanks again to Kon for pointing out this potential problem.
