Tickford Au2 ve engine cover

I removed it off my TE50 the day I got it as not only is it ugly but it prevents you seeing your engine or checking things or doing any work.The bracket around the calrenator to support it is also crude and heavy.

I am slightly worried however that the cover may serve some purpose like streamlining airflow behind the radiator or preventing hot air getting to the intake.Anyone know??
