    Why not just try some of the aluminum screen they use for house windows and sliding screen doors? You could make a frame from the DIY frame kits and then drop it into your own frame after that for a more rigid frame if needed....

    The configuration that Kustomfab mentions does work, I have had to use them during certain times of the year, mostly spring when things are blooming. The smaller openings will "load up" farly quickly but a $3 bench brush from HF works great to clean and only takes a couple swipes. note: screen must be metal due to temps it will see.

    Could you post a pic looking straight on from rear & side?

    Could you clarify...
    • There is an electric fan pulling air from the front (engine area) through the rad?
    • The rad is loading up on the engine compartment side?

    Got my new rear control arms finished up yesterday and a coat of paint on them, i'll be installing them today. Im hoping these hold up better than the tube ones. Just picking them up these new ones are slightly heavier but nothing extreme

    I'm hoping, i did change the coil over mount a little bit to help with the twisting, but i think im about out of missalignment and clearance to the axle haha

    I just built my rear arms for my ProtoDie and now am moving on to shock mounts. Debating on having them at the upright in the rear or on the top arm? I have an area for both already built into my design, so it will just depend on travel and clearance in the end. If I don't use the upright mount that will be for my limiting strap or vice versa.

    sometimes I wish mine were on the upright, would have saved a lot of headaches with control arms haha
    I've got it back on all 4s and I realised that the thing that goes between the springs on my coil overs was backwards so I flipped it and my tender spring is completely compressed now and the rear is sitting extra low, I probably need new springs anyone got a good calculator for off road stuff? It never jumped right anyway

    I used this calculator when I did mine. There are a couple different ones on the web though.
