Author Topic: Superbird A pillar wind deflector question for those in the know  (Read 475 times)

  I was out in the shop fitting up the wind deflectors before I drill holes. Would someone with a real 'bird (mine is not) take a few closeup photos especially of the top and bottoms. One area I need is at the top looking down/forward. Is there a gap between the deflector and the A pillar? Or do I need to pull the trim moulding off?


Thanks in advance for any help.

Most don't fit perfect.

 Thank you very much! That is exactly what I was looking for.
  I bought some replica deflectors and the tops aren't bent over and therefore have a huge gap. It just didn't look right.

  Thanks again and I hope you have a great weekend!

   62 Max,
  Thanks again for those photos. Could you tell me (or show me) whether the windshield seal is covered by the deflectors, or does the inside edge of the deflector press against or into the rubber seal? And one more question, There are 2 pieces of trim at each side, on the windshield and one on the door gutter. Do one or both of these need to be removed prior to installing the wind deflectors?

  Thank you for all your help.

Chris,

There is roughly about 3/16" of the weatherstrip exposed,the deflector is pressed against it,no trim under the deflector

If want to see something else that was easy,look at that O.E.M. vinyl top compared to the repop ! icon_smile_big

  Thanks again for the info. I didn't realize there was no trim under the deflectors. That's good to know. That will help.
   And regarding the Daytona deflectors, I know what you mean. I have a couple friends that have Charger 500's and we were looking at how those are installed. Interesting.
