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.
