Hi
Good day

I have been searching for a
Wind Blocker for quite a while but all are quite pricey.

So I decided to make one.
First I search for a shop that has a laser cutting machine.

I found that a friend of mine has one.
After some discussion, he said no problem as long as I give him a template.

Finally after many templates, I finally got it done today but it is still not wired permanently just temporary.
Beside I still have not decided on the logo.

It will have two color light
white = on all times
amber = on when brake applied
on/off switch when not using

Anyway the attached pictures should explain.
The total cost for 10 mm acrylic is
about less than USD80.00:grin::grin::grin:

Thank you & have a nice day.

Nice job, but I'd mount it the other side of the PTS display so you can see it ..

Hi
Good day.

Yes, mounting it on the other side, will be better & the rear sensor will be visible but the wind blocker will be tilted at a more acute angle.

It can be done & will post more pictures later to see how it goes.

Thank you & have a nice day.

Hi
Good day
Finally I got it done, my homemade wind restrictor without engraving but just simple reflective sticker.
Can change logo anytime to whatever.

Check out the pictures attached.
Hopefully can post all.

Thank you & have a nice day

ps: like my glow light on the rear bumper?

I think this looks great and wish it was an option on the wind blocker that I had purchase many years ago. Integrating the color change with the brake lights is a great idea. Have you tried it in red when braking? Thanks for sharing your creative work.

Hi
good day.
Will try to get hold of the dual color > red & white.

But usually it white & amber.
And yes, it will be great if can get it & connect the red to the brake light.

Thank you & have a nice day.
