Good work on the deflectors. Have you noticed any difference in wind noise? I think mine will be coming off tomorrow!

This week I've removed my passengers side wiper and put rain repellant on that side. The rain stays off it ok when you go over 50mph, but beads a lot otherwise.

I think my next mod will be mold inserts for the side vents. I'm going to use foil and wrap it closely against the body. Then use packing tape to make the outside part the mold (tape from the door sill to the outer part of the vent). Then use expanding foam in the crevace, building it up slowly to minimise any air bubbles. Hopefully then the outer layer will be hard enough to spray silver (to match tridion), don't know if I'll need any filler on top.

Have you any experience with doing this sort of thing?

This is the area I'll be filling up, except leaving no vent (actually I will have to do something like this for the passenger's side)
