    Nope- No use- Just looks.
    There is a wing noise TSB for some windshield weather strip that folks have has issues with.

    Or easy answer- Don't go 85-90mph??

    Machine gun mount. Would love to blow the shit out of it since it has nothing but issues. QA at Toyota USA is shit. Start making them in Japan for Christ's Sake!
    What about driving backwards? Would I still have noise?

    From the window TSB- No probably not. The window TSB was at highway speeds....and if you hit highway speeds in reverse....well...HOLY SHIT about covers that.
