Question Speedster Humps & Windstop Info Please

Hey
Can someone tell me if the Windstop can be installed when the Speedster Humps is Installed or does it have to come off. I swear I have seen it on with the speedster Humps are on but I may be wrong. In the manual of installation of the speedster humps it says it can no longer be installed when the humps are on.

Is there a way??

any info would be bloody great!!!

Thanks once again

CHASP

I always have the windstop on when the humps are on. Where does it say you cannot have both?

Are the speedster humps for looks? Or do they serve any other purpose?

Classic? Its more aggresive but I don't think its a trademark Porsche look.
Maybe if it covered the passenger area and had a single hump behind the driver's seat it would be a bit more classic/retro.

The Lines of the back of the boxster are very stylish as is. But that's just my opinion.

So how does the Windstop fit when the humps are on? I have the Porsche Manual that came with the Humps saying that the windstop can no longer be on when the humps are. I think it is due to the Velcro straps that wrap around the bar the Windstop installs on.

This being correct, how does the windstop install when the humps are on?

Tell me your magic

Installation Manual for Humps, comes in seperate papers, 4 pages to each Language and about 5 Languages in total.

So this Magic you speak of Tool Pants of having the Windstop installed while the Humps are, how does this work?

I have the 14 page brochure that came with the original humps and see no mention of the windstop. Must be something mentioned in the new style humps.

The straps are thin enough that it does not matter. In fact I have 2 sets of straps because I also have the rucksack. I removed the windstop for the picure.

I always use the screen

I have the official porsche humps and the windscreen just goes over the hold down straps. I have a 2000 Boxster with a new front clip that is turbo style. It actually uses the real Porsche grills. It looks awesome. And when I install the speedster humps, the windscreen fits right over the straps.
