Front grill on FR3

Hi, just purchased my 25ds. Only taken a couple of short trips. How can I keep the radiator from catching bugs. Also any special tips on cleaning the radiator?

That looks like a very simple idea. What size screen are you running ?

Take a look at "Rock found in ac condenser" on the fourth page of this forum posted bu Brewster McFrick. There are a lot of good ideas in that posting.

People have been putting screen wire in front of radiators since cars started running fast enough to catch bugs in the radiators with no ill effects as long as you clean the screen. Remember, you are forcing air into the radiator when you're on the highway. You used to be able to buy special made screens to go in front of the grills, back in the olden days!
