Step 3: Cutting and attaching the screen

Now measure and cut a piece of screen large enough to cover the frame and then trim it with wire cutters to fit inside.

Now drill 2 holes on each side of the frame to attach the screen to the frame. Spacing is up to you, but try to keep it even because the tops of the machine screws will be visible.
Unfortunately I got caught up in my work and forgot to take pictures of these steps.

Use machine screws with washers and nuts to attach the screen to the frame.

Now the screen is done!

Step 4: Fitting the engine cover

If you don't have an engine cover, this obviously won't apply to you. If you do, use this part of the walkthrough as a very loose guide.
I had to modify the engine cover to fit over the screen, but depending on how you did yours, you may only need to modify yours a bit or even not at all.


Basically, I had to trim the plastic parts that used to come into contact with the intercooler so that they now come into contact with the screen. It's hard to get a picture of what I did, but here is where I trimmed it down.

A dremel would be the best tool for this, I don't have one so I used a combination between a jigsaw, a file, and a sander.

Use your best judgment on how much to take off, checking it many times in between.

Your Done! I hope you had as much fun with it as I did!
