    Default wanted: windshield wind wings

    Good afternoon. I have a 1996 caterham 7 & I'm looking for a set of wind deflectors that mount on the side windshield frame. not sure what the correct terminology is.

    Thanks.

    I leave in the Raleigh area and have a set of these on my 1984 Caterham. Recently, one got broken. It was easy to cut a replacement from plexiglass, heat it with a hair dryer, and bend it to shape over the fender of another car. It looks like you don't live far away. If you order a set of hinges, you are welcome to make a pattern from mine. That said, the wind wings look "cool" but don't really seem to make a difference on the amount of air buffeting.

    Thanks for that info. Have you found a cure for the buffering?

    Since the used 7 I purchased did not come with doors, I have fabricated ones out of 1/2" square tubing and 3/16" polycarbonate. They are mounted on slip hinges.
    That is my home built solution. Factory doors would also work but they won't win a beauty contest.
    When all else fails, don't drive so fast.
