Bug screen

As we are heading west, from Ontario to Alaska this spring, I am worried about the bugs in the rad. Has anyone installed a bug screen? If so, I would appreciate how you installed it.

Thanks

I've been thinking about that myself. The front grill would let a medium size bird in.

Screen

That's been an ongoing conversation. I'd like to see some pictures of anyone that has fabricated a screen.

I have spoken to a gentleman that will make one for a good price. I will post a picture once it is done. There will be snaps on it.

I was thinking of using some stainless honeycomb sheeting (if I can find the right size), and see if I can fasten it to the inside of the opening. I agree that the opening is very inviting for bugs, birds, and rocks to smack into the ac condenser or the radiator. Something FR should have taken into consideration.
