Bug Screens for the Radiator
Does anybody have photos of their installation to keep the critters out of my condenser and radiator?

I just had my radiator flushed, tested and repainted and wanted to keep it looking decent. Since I didnt find a bug screen for the 71-73 I made a simple one with velcro applied to the radiator sides and nylon window screen that seems to work. It keeps the radiator clean and can be easily removed to get the bugs etc off.

I dont have a condenser but you could probably do some modification.

At the last show I was at a couple guys had just took the nylon bug screen and used the heavy duty spring paper clips and had clamped over the radiator. When at show they took off no bugs.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
That is what I and a friend use is bug screen and spring binder clips. works ok. I have thought about making a frame and installing strong magnets on it as well.

72 Mach 1 H-Code (Concourse driven restoration)
67 S-Code Factory GT with 4-Spd

68 Mercury Cyclone (Pro-Street project)
If you're not after original/concours, a cover from grille to radiator support is ideal: bug or no bug, you never see them.

73 modified Grandé 351C. Almost done. 
71 429CJ. In progress
OR...You could use BUG Spray!  Tongue

71-73 Mustangs never die, they just go faster!
Thanks for the replies.
I saw a 69 Boss at a recent show that used magnets to hold the screen in place.

Furnace filter. Comes in many sizes. Not pretty to look at, but works great for those long cross country trips
