My 74 JH is missing the mesh screen that should cover the front air scoop.  Delta has one listed in their catalog (Air Scoop Mesh - 98389).  I'm wondering if anyone has ordered this and knows if it's a good OEM or similar?

Has anyone had one cut from template at a welding shop?  Seems like it ought to be straightforward, but I'm not sure how tight a mesh this was OEM - any advice on this is helpful - I can't find a specification in the literature, and I don't have a model to draw from.

Thanks in advance - Matt

I'll have to look and see if I still have one. It was missing on one of the cars, badly replaced with chicken wire on another and what looked original on another one. If I remember right the original looking had .5" square mesh and a thick rod around the outside. Held in place with a couple of small brackets.

If no one else replies with an answer before Sunday, I'll look at a few cars at the Wheels of Britain show here in Phoenix and get a picture for you.

Here is a photo that might help.  A little small due to the file size limit, but still pretty clear if you zoom your browser a bit.

As far as I know, 10628 is all-original.
