1934 Hudson/Terraplane Tear Drop Horn Screen

I have been fortunate to locate, what I believe, is an original tear drop horn with "grill" insect screen intact.  I would like to remove the screen and get some laser cut.  My problems is - how to remove it with damaging the screen?

Before I tackle it, does anyone have suggestions on how to remove the screen?

    That doesn't look like the standard horn on a '34 car to me.
    It should be a mesh bug screen and I think - from memory - the aperture for the screen, and therefore the mesh, should be circular.
    My original horns are in my attic and I haven't seen them for years.
    I'll dig them out and post some pics.

    May be not 1934 but definitely 1936.

    Yes, could be.
    My horns need a bit of restoration but if you want them, I'm happy to let them go.
    I'll post some pics when I find them.

    Hopefully, horn pics will appear tomorrow or Wednesday.

    These reproduction horns are identical to those that came on my '33 KT. They have screens.  I am looking for advice on how to tune these horns to a musical interval. Any help?

    I have had success in removing the grill screen - three golf balls behind the screen and a bit of pressure and it popped out without distorting the grill screen.

    This is what the screen looks like out.
