mesh wind "blockers" useful?

Recommended Posts

I already have the center clear piece windblocker.

Some wind still gets through at high speeds. I realise obviously it's not possible to block all wind when driving with the top down.

But I am just wondering if those two additional mesh pieces for behind the seat provide any significant wind blocking at all, esp if I already have the larger center piece.

Anyone experienced a before/after?

My opinion is they look cool but I haven't noticed much difference in before and after. The wind still tries to blow my hat off. I found a set on eBay that the owner had painted Arctic Silver and they look great in the black roll bar and match the exterior color.

Mine blew out sometime ago at about 75 (fortunaly into the car, my sons lap to be exact) I didn' notice anything different at the time. I haven't put it back in but I often wonder if it would be be making any difference. Driving fast with a passenger without it is a contemplative affair. I guess its like the wing for me "is it doing anything...is it really even up?" no way to reasonably tell.

Thanks for the replies.

When I bought the centre piece, it definitely made a big difference.

I had my doubts about the mesh pieces. They are meshes for starters, and also they fit just behind the seat which doesn't make much sense.

I will probably save my money on this one then.

I think the mesh wind blockers located between the roll bars actually do reduce the wind and noise inside the cabin. To prevent an easy theft or to keep them from blowing out, I would suggest using cinch ties to keep them in place. I used white in the photo to make them visible. When the ties are the same color as the mesh or rollbar and the extra tail cut off, you can't see them.
