    Yep...they are SS mesh screens over a foam filter. The mesh is there to keep out the big things, and the foam filter will keep out the smaller particles. They are the same foam BBR filter bases they use for the tea ball tops. I haven't tried "spirited" driving with them yet though.

    I would love to replace all my nasty cinch-clamps with Normas.

    Where can I get them?

    TIA

    Greg,

    If you want to be correct for a '72 you need to change the wing nuts to knurled screws on your engine compartment plastic cover.... wing nuts started about Jan. '73

    Nice look'n car bud........

    Yep....saw that this morning, and that's a great thing! I just figured with her in Australia, email/PM would be the easiest way to contact her. Funny thing is...I've been to Melbourne before, so we'll have something else to chat about too. Thanks again Peter!
