[DML] fresh air hole under windshield cowl -- is it just a hole?


What is the usual arrangement for the fresh-air hole underneath the 
windshield cowl? Mine is just a big gaping hole, which means that I can 
get leaves, pine needles, bugs, and lots of water into my HVAC system. 
(I had over an inch of water accumulate in the footwells on the way to 
and from Gettysburg, and more sloshing over my feet with every hard turn.)

I managed to put a thin piece of aluminum flashing over the hole, but 
even though it's convex and therefore has open spaces on either end, it 
doesn't allow *enough* fresh air in at once to get good air flow into 
the air conditioning on "normal" -- "max" is, of course, fine.

Is there a missing screen or other such arrangement? I've seen no such 
thing in the parts manual, but I also know that the manual is missing 
many items.

On the other hand, if the rat-sized hole is standard and any of you have 
devised a way of reducing intrusion of things apart from air, I'd 
appreciate if you shared your secret with me. My DeLorean lives outside, 
and I do occasionally have to drive it in the rain, but I also like to 
use the air conditioning on "normal."

Thanks in advance!
