Default Ventshade Carflector

Just curious if anyone tried these things, yet on their '00 - '03 Bonnie. They replace a bra and are made of plastic, basicially like a vent shade on trucks. Won't trap water and are just a stick on. Look pretty cool-I think.

There'* several cmpanies out there that claim make deflector for any vehicle, all you need to do is i.e. go the ventshade and type in your application and they guarantee they will have one. I was just curious on how these things would fit and what they look like. I've seen them on grand prixs and grand ams and think they look sharp AND would serve a purpose.

I have them on my 2002 SLE and they look alright. this car was owned by a 74 year old man who put them on if that tells you anything. Their purpose is so that you can roll down the window a little and get some ventilation even when its raining and not get wet. My sunroof has one as well. It does make a little noise when on the highway.

They're talking about the hood protector, not the window shades.

I guess I misunderstood what you were looking for. I will check on this as well. If they look and function well they could save the paint job on the hood. Whats one more deflector on the car anyway.

Just whatever you do, no leather bra please, your hoods are aluminum and it will destroy the finish..

Just a heads up
