Where did you get that from? I've been considering using the factory unit myself. Did it come with the instructions?

Do wind blockers actually work? Is the behind the seat plastic blocker a better application than the one mounted at the trunk opening, the seal is tight, I would think it could wear and bind.

Indeed they do, but you need the side windows up to be effective (most people overlook that fact.) They work by creating a "bubble" of air in the cabin. It doesn't eliminate all wind but does indeed drastically reduce it.

Most that have used the "version 1" from wind restrictor indicate they prefer "V2" for some of the exact reasons you mention.

Got mine off eBay and yes it come with instructions
Seems like the factory put a support bar in that area in little different spots while in producion so measuring is extremely important

I measured and need the gen 2 version (19212066). They don't even sell the gen 1 anymore. You have to find it in the wild somewhere.

I've got one of the acrylic ones on my car it's ok and was inexpensive under a 100 bucks but I like the way the factory one looks more finished and one day will replace mine with one of those types .

Thanks for the kind words Chickenwire.

That will be an effective test. The WR2 uses velcro with high bond tape and mine hasn't budged a bit in 2.5 years.

People don't realize there's a safety issue. That's why we go so hard with the high bond. We do't want them flying off the back. Not everyone has that worry unfortunately.
