Wind stop
« on: August 07, 2021, 06:34:09 pm »
Anyone replaced the rather cheap looking and inefficient plastic wind stop with something more up to the job?

    Nope. But I would like to extoll the virtues of the Bugatti cap - specifically designed for open top sports cars, and with full flaps I simply don't notice the wind.

    Not what I was expecting, but nice! I love the thought of a tweed-attired gentleman tearing around the B-roads in an Abarth  ;D

    I have a SPYDER bobble hat that matches the paint scheme. A colleague once said everyone loves a driver in a bobble hat, I guess it’s simply fun. Also keeps the ears warm. Having said that I am partial to a flat cap ;)

    My son favours a bucket hat reasoning that (unlike a baseball cap) it doesn't have a peak that can catch the wind and blow off.
    Here are some other suggestions - although I note they have omitted the Bugatti cap.
