Is it ok to run without front wheel-arch liners?

One minor issue on mine is they are slightly chewed in each arch, in terms of the screw holes that secure them. If I vent the wings, won't I want them out anyway? I've seen a very neat job done with alloy panels and self-tappers, in sections around the wheel - if it sounds bad, it looked as good as factory, "just needed patience", the guy said. One other reason to maybe junk them is I'll be fitting a non-standard front-bumper/air-dam, which I want to give a little 'splitter' treatment to anyway, as well as maybe brake-ducts and perhaps a cold-air feed to a cone filter - though I did read that the standard box with a better element is a good bet too.
Has pulling the arch-liners seemed a mistake to anyone? Thanks for reading, and your replies.

just gets dirt & grime in everywhere, may lead to rust in there

Would you not be better off picking up a set in a breakers yard?
