Midge Screen
#1
Has anyone made a midge screen for one of the back seat windows in a Berlingo and if so how did you do it? I've got the net just trying to figure out a good way to attach it. The ideas I've come up with so far are not perfect:

1 Attach to inside using velcro - surface isn't flat, think there would be gaps
2 Attach to outside using magnets - boot window is right next to the door so magnet won't stick
3 Fold over the window so net is inside and outside - the sliding door mechanism gets in the way

Any tips greatly appreciated.

I had the same problem over Easter when I went to Portugal in my xtr I looked at a number options but as I was in the route was limited to what I could do, so opted for the quick solution by using a spray without any problems. . . but now that you remined me of the problem will look at other options

1. Remove the rubber seal from the window edge (just pull it off)
2. Stretch flyscreen mesh over the gap, cutting slots from the edge to let it past the hinge points
3. Reinstall the rubber seal over the mesh, pinching it between the steel of the van and the rubber seal
4. Trim the excess mesh that goes past the seal
5. Glue offcuts of mesh to the rest of the mesh to fill in the slots for the hinges.

Do yourself a favour and get flyscreen mesh from a hardware store, not the fabric mesh that a tutus are made with from a sewing store. The real stuff has fibreglass in it so it won't go floppy over time. Glueing offcuts onto flyscreens is standard practice to patch a hole. Real flyscreens (on houses) are actually held into an aluminium channel by wedging it in with a rubber cord, so this isn't that much of a different solution.

I grew up in a tropical rainforest, so you can trust me on flyscreens Tongue
