Posting to let everyone know of a very cheap option for grill screen or any opening you want to dress up or keep debris out.
I used a gutter screen from Lowes to make a mini grill for the front opening in my hood.
The screen is soft enough to easily shape and strong enough to be functional. It is even powder coated gloss black.
Details in the attached pictures.
Two pieces would make a nice grill. One above the bumper and one below.
Note: The picture of the full piece is missing the piece I used for the hood.

Ill be there as a 'cruise in' car.
Saving $35 this year.
Thinking about racing Friday night before ZAttack? Music City Raceway will be open for Friday night drags.
The cars will look better with some rubber on the rear quarter panels.

Is that screen plastic or some sort of metal?

The picture says "Metal Lock-in Gutter Guard"  so I would assume it is metal.

My car is gutted awaiting rollbar upgrades. So it will be a trailer queen that gets pushed into a spot. Maybe I will have an act together for racing 3 years from now. Coming in landspeed configuration.
