    Hey Youse who Knows,

    Were the 1980's or so Convert / G5 crash bar mounted air deflector thingies originally in metal or plastic? I need 'em for a project and see some plastics on Ebay.

    I seem to recall originals in metal.

    Well there is a guy here in Connecticut that has what appears to be the first Convert in the States.. Now Now Now let me give you some specifics .

    The seerial number on the engine is 8(there are no other markings of any kind ) The serial number in the Convert transmission is (wait for it ) 1. Yes 1 is correct. Ill take pictures in the near future , one pic is worth a 1000 words.

    Now to answer your question . His wind deflectors or wings are metal( mine on my convert are plastic ) . The instrument panel is metal . His master cylinder is metal and is shaped like a triangle
