window screens

I have a Thomas Transit Liner & the windows have rounded corners & are not square & was wondering if anyone has any ideas or solutions for building screens... Or if anybody knows where I can buy them? Here is a photo of a window.

Attach with screws or fabricate some retainer clips into existing screw holes.

Wow... I understand what you are describing but that sounds like it might be out of my ability unless I buy some more tools...
I will have to look at it more closely, thanks! Jonathan
