Default where can I get wire mesh?

Ok, where can I get some good quality wire mesh online so I can use it on my SC cover? I literally went to every store in town that might possibly carry it and no one had ANYTHING near what Im looking for.

Gutter guard from Home Depot or Lowes (or probably any other hardware store). Mine is from HD.

Pardon the dust from over 5 years ago:

ALOT of the stuff home improvement stores sell aren't offered online. So their thinking is...why put it online if it can't be bought online?

Trust us....go to any of those stores, and they will have it.

Like I said earlier, we dont have Lowes or Home Depot around here. According to Home Depot site the closest is an hour away and for Lowes, its 45 mins I think. Since I dont have my license and no one willing to drive me I gotta stick with ordering off the net unfortunately

Ive never had my license cause I got caught driving w/o one once and I still needed to drive so I did, and I kept getting caught. I suspected I was about to get my license real soon which is why I got this car but Iowa is screwin me over yet again. I just want my car real nice, fixed up, and runnin perfect for when I finally do get my license.

Lets see, we have Ace hardware, Fleet Farm, Menards, Tractor Supply, and a few other places and I stopped at EVERY single one and advance auto carries a thin plastic version which would probably break even melt. Tomorrow if I get the chance Im gonna call around to auto body shops
