    I have had too replaced the gravel guards a few times and now the new ones have been broken again. I noticed the most of the challenge cars have screens fitted No louvers .The standard gravel guards fitted to 360 and 430 uses the plastic louvers act as a shield. Once the louvers have been broken rocks can damage your cooler , I was looking online Ebay found a new set of 360 Challenge gravel guards with the screens fitted they where asking 1700.00 US dollars PASS ON THAT !! So I found custom car grill screens on Amazon for 20.00 and they recommend using Goop max II adhesive it cost around 11.00 . I bought a cheep jig saw and a rivet tool and aluminum rivets and washers . Here are some pics this only around 30 minutes in too replacing with the screens, wend am done I will post completed ones

    Mine would get destroyed on track days, when clag would get thrown up going off line to pass other cars. I finally gave up replacing the OEM ones and installed screens like you have. I won’t win any concours, but my wallet is the better for it.

    This is the way it should have come from factory..

    I wish they would have done louvres in the front fenders to prevent high pressure air build up in the front fender area at higher speeds too ...

    Amazon Prime Goop Max II is the real deal !! If your gravel guard is crack or broke between the screen and Goop Max II it will make it better than new and a heck of allot stronger !! This is the way the Ferrari should have made it they do on there Challenge cars maybe to much labor time ?

    I found this to be better way to upgrade the gravel guards , the louvers also must reflect the water down as well as rocks and gravel, should have thought at the begging .
