Making Wind Deflectors

To make wind deflecters that "clip" onto your windscreen side brackets, you will need 4 hinges like these, They slot onto the windscreen post, then are "nipped" up with an Allen key (you can just see the screw on the top hinge)

You can get these from the various shows, or they are available from:

On Dave Tomlinson's car, and he admits that it is a copy of Mr Sheen's.

Hinges came from S & J Motors, of Chorley (Tel No etc. in *usefull No's page*) approx £5 each.

Then the perspex was supplied & cut to a cardboard template, by Display equipment Co, 197 St Georges Rd, Bolton, for £2.

These are the deflectors fitted to Al Richey's Superspec.   He made some brackets from some scrap stainless steel and attached them to the existing hinges for the doors.   This allowed the doors to be added at the same time as the deflectors.   Although since fitting them he has found he doesn;t need to use the doors even in fairly heavy rain.
