I sill have the original Bama Spyder Wind Deflector which was made to replace the stock smoked OEM deflector that came with the car and it was created to address the rear visibility. Bama Spyder also created a slightly larger version which nearly eliminated the turbulent wind noise issues in the cabin and because it was clear you could see out of it which went way beyond what the Toyota engineers could not achieve.
Uncle Mush has taken this design and improved on it by making it out of clear Acrylic which is the same material used to make the OEM. After receiving the production sample I can attest that the manufacturing is superb with neatly cut and exact surfaces, so exact that I could stand the deflector up on it's edges without any support.
The Acrylic is also crystal clear which was a surprise as well and you should not be able to tell it's there while driving all the while performing it's function of buffeting the air so you can hold a conversation.

Lay down a strip of Scotch 3M double sided tape where the gasket will go. The gasket is provided with your deflector purchase. Do not use blue masking tape as in the picture. I just used the blue masking tape to give you a reference of where the double sided tape will go. Use OEM part to reference for placement of the gasket.
