Cool Top Down and Crest/windstop hack

Couldn't stand it and so I took the mrs. out for a drive with the top down. This is only the second time I have driven it with the top down since Dec. when we first bought it. Man, it is going to be a good spring/summer/fall for sure.

You will note in the attached pic that I applied one of the Porsche resin stick on crests in the lower center of the windstop. This is the larger of the two stick on resin crests offered by Porsche. Excuse the refections on the windstop in the photo along with the questionable focus as I was standing up and didn't have the camera on a tripod. I will try to get some better shots the next time I have it out. Party on!

I would like to get one of those "etched glass" Porsche Crest decals for my windstop. I haven't seen them, though.

BTW, I like the crest you put on your's.

Chills, the crest is available from your dealer or online from PCNA. It is WAP 107 066 14 @ $7.00 plus shipping. Measures 1.25 x 1" and is about an 1/8" thick. Resin with a sticky back. I mounted it about 3/4" above the bottom of the windstop and it is just below eye level when viewed in the rearview mirror. It is much nicer than a flat, paper sticker.

If I can't find a decent etched glass decal I'll probably get the same one you have.

I just bought some off of ebay, but they are tiny! Maybe 1/2" tall by 7" wide... glad I didn't pay much, I'd like to get something about twice as big.

I just purchased an "PORSCHE etched glass" decal from ebay for $5.00 including shipping. He also has a "Boxster" decal.

Same one's I ordered, just got them yesterday and they are really small... I'm seeing if they have anything larger.

I didnt want anything too big, but the 1/2 inch sounds a little small. Let me know if they have anything bigger.

Thanks!
Georg

Yeah, I don't want anything gaudy, but about twice as big would be good (just so you could see it from a car length)... I'll let you know what I hear back from him.

I ordered a custom windstop decal from these folks:
