wind deflector?

I was sure I'd seen pics of a wind deflector that mounts of top of the widshield of an MG-B. Can't find... Anyone help me hook up with the designer/manuf? At 6-4, I do tend to stick up a bit!
Thanks
Don B.

Mike made his from the front part of an old MGB convertible top.

Mike let me try out his deflector on route to Omaha last summer. It definitely reduced the buffeting of my ballcap brim and made the top down trip more enjoyable.

The decal is a very important feature. It adds even more power than B cam!

Now Curtis, Do you think the Mothership had a British V8 Decal on it? Aliens have no need for V8's since they use impulse power! :-).

Yep... and obviously a much better kept secret.

Imagine a B cam AND a BritishV8 sticker on the same car!

That would thrust the car into a "whole nother" dimension.
And it would then become invisible to us.
Probably making time travel a reality.
That would explain the reason that it hasn't been in the media yet.
I'm just going to tune my tinfoil headgear and go check it out!
