Question about NT1A stereo array.

Hello fellow recordists, 

I'm just starting out in the nature recording world and have just built an ORTF 
rig for my Rode NT1A mics. I have used some plastic mesh as a frame for which 
to slip over my fur windjammers. The mesh I bought wasn't strong enough to hold 
its shape so I had to double up. My question is, at what point does there 
become too much "stuff" between the diaphragm and the sound? 

This is what my rig looks like, prior to adding some sheer stocking sleeves and 
the fur windjammers:

Would my audio be affected by using this doubled-up mesh? Should I redo the 
frames with some thin aviary wire instead? I did a few tests, but I'm unable to 
really discern a difference in what I'm hearing. I don't think I've developed 
my organ of audio sufficiently yet.
