stainless shaker screen is what you want. most metal shops can get it but you may need to order a full sheet 4x8ft. I have a strip its 10in x 5in. I have a few round mesh light covers(non hinged) but mounting can be a pain. if your in town drop on by

If you need two of the mesh headlight screens, I have a set for you. As I have been cleaning out my stuff,
I found some that I had gotten for my Dad who was on gravel roads all the time at the North end of the Island.

No sense they have another birthday in my box of bits and pieces..

Metal fly screen from Home Hardware. But it will plug up just like the clothes dryer. Keep the headlights, you need them more. Put air filters on and call it good. If you have air filters what do you need a screen for.
