Windblocker netting ripped

Hi all, 1 of my triangle-shaped windblock nets has ripped (behind drivers head). I am not sure how this is called but looking for a replacement (probably as a pair). Can someone help me with the proper English and/or German name for this item? :-) I hope to find it on eBay..

Any tips on where to purchase these is also highly appreciated of course!

I attached 3 pictures to explain better hopefully.

Thanks in advance, best regards,
Bart

Send a PM to Craige (Curro101) in Madrid. He makes superb roll hoop inserts made of perforated aluminum; I got a pair recently and they're just the bee's knees.

I'd happily make up a set !
The only problem being that the original ones actually also hold the original windblocker in place ....
Clalibrero , if you're intersted , maybe we can look into you sending me your broken piece if it's all there and I Can look into replacing the mesh with something similar or with the solid metals parts I make if that's not possible , maintaing the original fixings for the windblocker ?
I'll PM you my email address so you can contact me directly if you want to .

Windblocker inserts sorted!

Dear all, just wanted to comment on my own post and close the topic. Craige did an amazing job with the inserts, they look much better than the original and stronger though (metal instead of cloth).

I will post some pictures later as well. Very happy with the result and communication during the process.

Craige - I'll thank you personally next time I'm in Madrid mate! :-)

Best regards, Bart

Got photos?

Curious to see how they look with the original anchors for the OEM draught stop.

Calibrero, I'm really glad you're happy with the outcome, they should last you a while !! Jejeje..

Here's a couple of pics of the finished item, I have some of the process if anyone's interested, hopefully Calibrero can post some pics fitted, when he gets a few minutes free....

Fiited and photographed!

Yes they are fabulous, really professionally done Craige! Finally had some time to make pictures in dry weather during daylight (after all, this is Netherlands!).

Cheers, Bart

In case anyone's wondering how or thinking of doing them, they're held in place by adhesive and some small tabs, cut out in the design !

Absolutely brilliant job!
Mine is still in perfect condition but should it get ripped I know were to turn to.
On a complete offtopic sidenote, Craige, I noticed you often use the phrase " jejeje". What does that mean? Something like " yeeeaah" ? Is it an expression of laughter? Is it something Spanish? Just curious.
