Advice on making a Cowel Vent Screen

I have a 37 Plymouth with factory air. I want to replace the cowel vent screen and need a little advice. Has anyone ever made one from scratch without a pattern to use as a template? Thanks for any help offered.

I've made more cowl vent and kick panel vent screens that I care to recall. I live near the metropolitan Detroit area so we have scores of different suppliers and jobbers for nearly anything you can imagine. Most what I did were required to be chrome for authenticity. Screw that...went to stainless. I aquired a good sized drop of 1/8 by 1/8 stainlesswire mesh from a company called Phoenix Wire Products on Stephenson Hwy, and I think they were in Troy, MI. They're still in buisness and you may try some thing like yellow pages.com or something to find em, or see if you can locate soething similar in your area. For crissakes, whatever you do don't use friggen lumberyard steel mesh. Nice thing bout the stainless is it polishes out pretty and you can solder to it with low temp silver solder. The solder is maybe more that the amount of screen you'll use. Good luck on your search. It's not that difficult to do.

Thanks Highlander for the info. I live less than 20 minutes from Stephenson Hwy. and I think I know where they are. If you are so good at this, and you are in my neighborhood, how would you like to make one for me. The time saved would be worth the $ spent.

Dejavu, Factory Air on a 37 follows the 4/60 design principle, roll down all 4 windows and go 60 mph. The cowell vent is the extra benfit.
