Being a fresh air fiend, the first thing I bought for Dizzy were wind deflectors for the top of the doors. I went for the clear plastic ones so as to not resrict the view. Dead easy to fit, they push up between the seal and frame, just be lightfingered, as the bit that goes up there is shaved very thin, and was creaking a bit as I did it. Best to slide something thin in first to make it easier. Now I can drive around with the windows down about 2" without getting wet. (Incidentally, while I was checking other posts to see I wasn't repeating anything, saw the entry about central consoles. I don't like anything remotely loose in a vehicle, having experienced a fatal in the 70's when a toolbox shot forward and decapitated the driver at spagetti junction. (pre metal cage behind driver). For same reason I don't keep anything heavy above level of the back of bed. Sorry to be morbid)
Servimg appears to be down at moment so no pic of window

Just Kampers page 100 in latest cat, or part no. J12185 £27 pair, or J11994 for stainless, £39.50 not sure if those require drilling though.

I keep looking at these, especially now the 'supposedly' wetter weather is coming with winter. Should solve the misting up of the windows. I remember Denis saying something about having to cut his down to get them to fit.
Do the windows still fully close with them on, or does the window just butt up to the top of it?

I have a pair of plastic ones but initially while driving they sometimes fell out. I spoke to Just Kampers Tech guys about this and they just stated my felt runners were probable worn, which was no help when I have 10 month old van. I found putting a thin double sided sticky rubber pad on the edges which helped holding them in place. I have stuck a review on Just Kampers product regarding this but they have not published my comments.
The only other thing I must point out about this product, if someone is jealous and decide they want them, they simple side off from the outside.

Hi Matt! (oops, senior moment) yes windows fully close, the top edge is sandwiched between the outer edge of the felt runner and the rubber strip that seals the door frame so don't interfere with the window at all. So far no trouble with falling out or theft, but some fixative on top edge wouldn't go amiss, it wouldn't be seen anyway.This is the fragile bit I referred to earlier.
