for you it is reecommended that you take yours off because it lets the upper intake operate at a cooler level to prevent the upper intake failure

I've done one Series 1 L67, and 2 L27 covers now. The best adhesive I've found to date is silicone adhesive (sealant). The mesh is gutter guard from Home Depot.
