After I installed my watercooled engine, I noticed the windnoise was louder at 120 km/h then the engine noise.
The windnoise is coming from the front windscreen.

I read in a aerodynamics book that factory aero mods at the front are mostly meant for noise reduction, and aero mods at the back are drag/lift reduction.

I did some changes, and that lowered the wind noise. It's not totally gone yet, but I think that will be nearly impossible with our 1930's based design.

I will try the extra weather strip, Jason suggested.

These are my mods uptill now:

- Raingutter Fillers / A pillar deflectors
- Vitaloni mirror
- Antenna delete

Another mod that I am planning is adapting blade-type windscreen wipers.
