For Auburn speedster replica owners that have side curtains on their doors for use in the rain. If you have the tiltable wind defectors also mounted on your car, in order to close the door once you have the convertible hood up and you have clipped the door window/rain canvas on, you need to open the wind wing deflector out of the way by tilting them toward the front of the car, so they don’t obstruct your ability to close the door when the door window/rain canvas has already been clipped onto the door. Then you have the problem that once you are seated in the car, if you have clear plastic sewn windows, you cannot access the wind wing deflectors to tilt them back towards the rear of the car… they would be sticking out as you drive, making a lot of wind noise. How have people solved this problem?

Here is my idea. If you had a sliding Perspex door window (instead of clear plastic), you could open the Perspex, reach your hand out, and fold the wind deflector back once you were inside the car. That would be one way to do it if you kept the wind wing deflector mounted to the OUTSIDE of the upright outer windscreen frame.

The only other way would be to have the wind wing deflector fixed to the INSIDE side of the upright outer windshield frame, so that the wind wing deflector would ultimately sit inside the cabin when folded back toward the cabin, thereby allowing the door window/rain canvas to shut so they sit outside and on top of the wind wing deflector.

Any ideas or practical experience on this issue would be appreciated
