OK, taped up some of the other bits and stuffed rags into gaps around the beak. Geared up and took off down the street. No whistle! Stop and remove a bit of tape. Still gone. Repeat. Still gone. Remove a rag. Still gone. Remove another, it's back! Stuff back in just on one side of the gap, still whistling. Other side. Still whistling! Hmmm... OK, back on both sides. No whistle. Hmmmmmm......Aha! The middle! Rag stuffed in just the middle and....no fucking whistle!!!



Right behind the beak under the lights is a hollow structural member with the open bit facing forward. Rag's still in there. I'll need to find a more elegant and washable solution.

Or not.
