i use 3 layers on my car first is a 1/2 in mesh then a 1/4 and finally use window screen. i'm going to buid an endureo car this year and will add some lenghts of dog chain with lug nuts on it to hang in front of it to help shake stuff off a buddy of mines dad used to do that back in the day on his endureo car.is this the midwest series ? i might try to hit the show at hawkeye downs this year with mine

I dont run this class but I have been told to run some chain as an example. Mount it on the top and loose on the bottom and with the car movement it will "shake off" the mud.

I run the front end completly sealed off and then have a screen that is attached to a bungy cord at the top that hooks to each side, then I zip tie big nuts to the bottom of the mesh, you can easily pull the screen out when you want to clean or when you have to work up there, those screens always have sharp peices hanging off.

Try fireplace screen, attach it at the top only let the bottom hang loose. That way the mud drops off as you hit bumps. (and other cars hehehe) hope this helps..loojack

I have used fireplace screen too it works good. The kind that slides open and closed. I mount it so it can shake up and down. I just keep an eye out for it on trash day:-)
