    Any suggestions for a pop up wind deflector for Challenger '96?

    I'd like to buy or build a wind deflector for my '96 Challenger so on longer trips I don't have the full wind blowing against my face the entire time. Any ideas?

    Get you some vintage aviator/wonka goggles!

    Seriously tho... I was wondering the same thing about my Sportster. The last time I was out it got pretty chilly heading back to the dock once the sun went down! Maybe a motorcycle windshield?

    Dang, I see people wearing stuff like that in their cars over here all the time. Never knew they were good for the water too!

    I like the wonka goggle idea the best. Thanks for the laugh.

    I keep a couple of sets of the protective eyewear from Harbor Freight in the tinted, one case I'm out after dark. Similar to what you'd wear for weed wacking or leaf blowing!

    I did find a nice pair of Oakley goggles on sale that worked very well over my RX glasses. They are a bit big and my wife says they make me look like a dork. But after seeing the Willie Wonka white ones here, I feel better now about wearing them. Still I would like something to just tame the wind a bit. Now that I think about it, I haven't seen my goggles since the last trip. Crud, I hope they didn't blow out of the boat. I cleaned the boat out and don't remember now ever seeing them.

    I might try to build something like the windaway in the post above. There is no lip on the Challenger to attach a windaway but probably not to hard to build a mount on the top. Keep the ideas coming...

    Sea Doo had them for the 14.5. You may find some in nos stock some
    where. Do know how effective they were.
