Need Hood Vent Mesh (Insides)

Hey guys, local car wash place ruined my hood vent innards with their wax and now its all white inside the vent..its a pain to clean it so I would rather just buy a replacement. IND, jlevisw, nobody sells the insides. Where can I find them?

Just to clear it up Im not talking about this

If they're just clogged up with wax a little nylon brush and some type of cleaner fluid will clean them right up.....
