The DIY Loren refers to is for 996 GT3 intake screens...... Since you posted in the 997 GT3 forum, I'll assume you have a 997 GT3. Note that there will be differences in the 997 bumper and screens. If you DO have a 996 GT3, let me know. I can provide additional help AND have screens available.

I received my screens in the mail yesterday. They are very nice, and they should be!! Does anyone know if the outside radiator ducts on a 997 aero kit are the same size as the GT3 ducts? I may have screwed up! Also noticed today that GT# screens are on eBay, $80!!!!!!

A low-tech but effective method I heard from a respected race shop mechanic is to get some furnace filter and cut to match contour of the front face side of elements to be protected, i.e., radiator surface.

I am told this does not impede air flow yet will protect the radiators.

I'll try this in the Spring, but will likely also get the Carnewale grills.

I ordered a set of screens from Carneval, I think they are from Carcarphics (correct me if I am wrong). At first, reading some messages at this website, I thought this will be impossible. Well, I already made some alternative screens. Luckily my friend, a car freak by nature, visited me this afternoon, and with him we found a way to fit the screens without any modifications, keeping all original air ducts intact. Very nice indeed.
