As Dingo G said. You can get aluminum screen from just about any hardware store. The screen you noted from VTS is perfect for the older windows that has the pre-bent edge that you crimp the screen into. This screen material would probably be too stiff to use with a spline. Besides, aluminum screen is much easier to work with compared to galvanized. Good luck, Bubba

I got my screen at home depot.
In the end I had to admit defeat & have my large front & back screens done at the local glass shop. 20 bucks for both with aluminum screen.
The curved side windows are not bad to do but the large front and rear windows were impossible for me not to warp.
I tried all sorts of tips from this forum but those two screens beat me.
Hope it goes smoothly for you.
