Got back into the garage, started 'looking about' for a 100% solution to the whistle.

I came across some vinyl hose on the peg board... shiny...black... it matches!!

So rather than just block that air from behind as recommended by Madstad,
I decided to block it altogether.  I split the hose, and ran it along the lower edge.
This blocks that crack completely, and covers the sharp edge of the base.
I have yet to ride it like this...  Tomorrow after work I'll get her out on the road for
a test.  Fingers crossed!

Yep... it did.  I've since found foam to fill the gap that hose was filling, so it looks better.
