Wind wings on Sky / Solstice
« on: June 06, 2020, 11:00:33 PM »
I've been thinking about installing a set of wind wings of the sort that cars like MG, Triumph, and others used to have onto my Sky. Moss Dune Buggies, factory Five, and others make some. Has anyone done this? Ever since some nutcase at GM decided to ditch window vents in 1968 there's been no way to divert the wind blowing in. Or to get wind in.

I know you've been looking for this for a few years and as RedOne07 said, someone did but I be darned if I can find it.

EDIT: I believe that this might be what you are looking for. Unfortunately this never gained any traction but the first post has an email that might help you in your search.

I remember this idea from back in the day.  I made some myself by cutting some acrylic sheet I had spare, but it was a PITA getting them to sit properly in the window molding and not fall out, so I never used them again.

Make sure you use polycarbonate ("lexan"), acrylic will easily crack where polycarbonate is the polar opposite and extremely tough.

You are talking about triangles for the front of the side windows, to stop the buffeting of wind around the windshield and side mirrors? If so I bought a set off of the link Bob posted, or one like it. If you want them and I can dig them up, you can have them. Just shoot me an email at jmcalister AT gmail DOT com and we can sort out the details.
