With all respect sir, that is the worst bit of advice i have heard. It would come with it from the factory? Then why are we on here discussing mods and lowering our cars and changing rims and tires and exhaust and motor mounts and tint and everything else we do???If a rain guard was necessary, I'm sure it will come with the car from factory.
My support to your wife! With all respect Sir!
Thanks, I look forward to your pictures. Your post was very helpful...Thank You!My focus is my first car so I don't have much previous experience. However I just installed the in-channel WeatherTech deflectors over the weekend. They were a pretty simple install...except the rear set. The front set fits in nicely, but the rear set doesn't seem to fit flush with the frame. As others have mentioned, the tape sucks and doesn't have a good bond between the fin and the car channel. It seems like the fin is a bit too "long" for the channel and so I even see a bit of the fin/ tape with my deflectors installed. (This is assuming I've installed them correctly...but I've shoved them up there as far as they go.) I've read some other posts saying the rear set almost fell off, maybe I'll try some 3M tape as well.
I used to hate the look of rain deflectors on cars, but now i don't think its too bad. I have noticed some additional wind sounds when driving on the highway, but it doesn't seem too bad. Haven't had the chance to test the rain blocking aspect because I'm trying to mold the deflectors into the channel. The window motors still have trouble closing with the deflectors, but hopefully that will go away in a few days.
I'll try and get some pictures of the deflectors and close ups of the rears, when I have time. p.s. My windows are not tinted and my deflectors are the darker tint, so you can compare that as well.
