:jester Someone asked about my windbaffle and I forget who, so I'm posting an answer here.
That was Dr Bob's and I bought the caddy emblem to try and give it a little class. The Plastic just looked to plain. Cost? $55 for the emblem. Intelligence to put it on? Zero:nono

Hi Standby it was me....
Did you glue the caddy emblem to the wind baffle or did you use double back tape. Is the emblem a distraction to you in the rear view mirror?

Very nice touch... :thumbs :thumbs

Mind if I steal your idea??? :jester

Motorboat,
Actually I'm flattered that you like it. There are two different kinds of emblems. The old style which I have and the newer style. There are subtle differences between them.
They both come with pull off tape and you just stick them on. The emblem and the wreath are two pieces.
I don't find it to be a distraction. The only distraction was the price of $85.00, but they felt bad and gave me a 20% discount .


Well, tomorrow is the BIG day, guess we will know what's up with the HP. My dealer will be back from Jacksonville sometime Monday and he will have the real story. I've got a hundred that says we get 440HP.

Looking Good Dr. Bob,
Now you have done it. The straps look so much better. What are they made of? Can you still adjust them if they come loose or stretch out?
What is the sticker in the photos just below the strap? Is it a Caddy Emblem? That would be nice.
Thanks for the upgrade. :thumbs :thumbs

Motorboat,

Checkout my pictures. I have Dr. Bob's windbaffle and bought an emblem from Cadillac and stuck it right in the middle. Haven't had any bad press about it, in fact most thought it looked pretty factory.

Nice Touch Standby: :thumbs :thumbs
If I get one of these I think I will add one or two to mine...

I see in the photo that Dr. Bob just posted that it had some kind of emblem right below the roll bar. I would be a great touch if he added them to the windbaffle.
Also I would like to know if you can readjust the straps if they become loose and what are the straps made of.

Clear mounting system

Hi Terry,
The clear straps are available to all Windbaffle owners (as a set of six) for $25 +S/H.

The straps are made of crystal clear plastic with very secure, clear Mushroom-style Velcro latches on each end.
Thanks for your interest, Bob

Happy Spring Topdown Driving !! :flag

Cadillac Crest

Sorry Motorboat-

The insignia on the WB photo shown above is a Viper decal .
It doesn't look near as fabulous as the Cadillac Crest however.
I think we all can agree. :thumbs

Now that I see my emblem, I'm wonder how it would look if I had two, one each in the middle of the roll bars. That way they wouldn't be the line of vision in the rear view mirror, not that it bothers me at all.

I like it better in the center, but you should have it on front and back :thumbs

I am confused-I've seen the wind baffle on the outside of the roll bars (toward the rear of the car) and on the inside (toward the driver's compartment). Which is the proper way to place the baffle? :confused

Some time ago I went out with a wind speed indicator and tested a number of different configurations. I posted the results on this board.

Don't know............Choose your poison. I saw no difference either way I set it up.
