snap on grill screen

I was wandering if anyone has a picture of the snap on grill screen, like the one Quadratec carries, on a CJ? It doesn't matter if it is the winter or summer screen. I was thinking about ordering both but I would like to see one on a CJ first. The Wrangler picture shows a square one to fit the grill but I wanted to make sure the CJ screen has the half moon cut out for the headlight bezel. THANKS!!

Re: snap on grill screen

You can make it cheaper than you can buy it. I made a winter front for my CJ from heavy Mylar, the stuff the soft top windows are made from. I've yet to make a summer front, but here's the plan for this summer.

1. Buy some plastic screen door mesh.
2. By some heavy duty cloth/vinyl covering material.
3. Cut the pastic covering into a frame for the mesh.
4. Using Weldwood Carpenters glue, glue the mesh to one side of the frame.
5. After is sets up, spread the glue and fold over the other side.
6. For safe measure where the vinyl meets vinyl, use a steam iron and a little aluminum foil to spread the heat and fuse the material together.
7. Attach the clips to match those on the grill and I'm done.

I used this method to make a solid tanau covers for my motorcycle side car, years ago... it works great. A little contact glue here, a little heat there and a rivet or two if you want reinforcement and in an hour you've saved yourself big bucks and it looks better than factory.

The rear deck cover for the tub is on the list as is a home-made windbreaker. I hope this summer to complete this project.

Safe Jeepin'
