wind deflector/restrictor R170

does anyone have a CAD drawing of a wind deflector/restrictor? I would like to make my own as the old one is hard to see through at night.

link for example. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mercedes-...-/191777936297

Jeff: the important pictures in post #1 of the DIY post do not come up for me.
Also the bulkhead is within a few degrees of vertical. At the top of the bulkhead mine tilts back an additional ten degrees. I suspect this is to avoid reflecting the dash at night.

Unfortunately, that member used a hosting service no longer working
This is why we rather members upload attachments to the forum rather than use a hosting site
I am hoping the words help him in his endeavor

Wesleythung check with your local law enforcement. Sometimes materials and framing could be an issue. Good luck on your project!
