hey guys, I recently bought a second hand OEM wind restrictor and since the weather has been warm I tired it out. here's a picture of how I have it on, but I comes off when I drive at highway speed with the top down. do I have it on correctly?

hi, just wondering what/why there apears to be a strap on the top of it. should this go around the roll bar and velcro to fix?
also are there straps that go down to popper behind outside edge of seat?

I will double check in the morning, but the if i remember correctly, the strap on top doesnt fit around the top, if it reached it would stay up. and yes, i tried to show in the picture, there are straps that go down each side on the outside edge of the roll bars that hold it in place.

looks like a 3rd part attempt at oem. get a windrestrictor (our sponsor) with member discount!

I bought a nice Lexan wind screen for my '01 320 SLK from Windblox.
I also got it smoked, and shipped it was around $160.
My wife and I were driving down the interstate yesterday at 75mph and were able to have a conversation without yelling, and although it trussled our hair a little, it was actually quite nice! We really like it.

Do you have a photo of it installed on an SLK? all the website had was on the SL's

Thanks
