Roll Hoops and Windstop!

Post  Dark Knight on 20/1/2009, 7:18 pm

Ok well was after changing the exhaust but after spending most of the weekend driving around topless in prepartion for the Artic Circle i realised a windstop might stop me getting a stiff neck in the cold....

So how easy are they to fit? I am looking at the Mk1 Boxer hoops and winstop. Plus with the VAT being lower ther cheaper at the min.

If i run into problems anyone be kind enough to lend a hand?

I can't believe you need to "prepare yourself" for the Arctic Circle run - Wussy Boy!!

Good idea re the windstop though - I took mine off when Russell did the hoses, and spent a couple of days without it, the difference is massive!

when i said prepare i mean't figure out what jacket would be best to wear! also found out i need warmer trousers or a wind stop!

And i don't need to wear woolly gloves i can get away with my old bike gloves that are fingerless.......

i was going to go for just a windstop but i want the hoops so may have get the two combined,

I know what you meant! You were out with the roof down, hoping that you'd get used to it so no-one teases you for turning blue and crying!

i have never fitted anything like it before, but i am only a wee youngen at nearly 21. i will offer a hand as i know somethings help if there is a second person to hold things steady. i have just had a look on ebay for a few things, what do you think of these things for upgrade. colour coded mgtf air vents (in tahiti blue) £20, and colour mgtf door handles (in tahiti blue) £30.

that seems steep to me. and the windstop i wanted, he wanted 100quid for Sad

back on topic. i can help if you need me 2
