I'm looking for a pair of the later style sun visors - the leather can be any colour or even damaged, as I just want the bracket mechanism that bolts into the 'screen studs for a little experimental project

Regards, Jon

You can make them from a bit of old piano hinge off cut smile

The sunvisors are, under the leather and padding, two sheets of aluminium that are rolled at one edge to form an internal diameter of 6mm. Four stainless rods (two for each visor) of about 10cm length and 6 mm diameter are flattened at one end, shaped, drilled and countersunk to accept the screws.

These rods are a tight fit in the rolled edge but can be rotated or moved in and out of the sunvisors to match any possible manufacturing variation in the screen frame. Note that there are four additional 10mm spacers to distance the visors from the screen frame. If the visor has a tendancy to fall down the rolled aluminium must be tightened on the rods. I have managed to do this with a bit of scrap leather as padding and a wooden drift hit with a hammer.

I strongly recommend that that the visors be suitably upholstered to avoid accidental scalping in the case of an accident scared

That first picture is amazing Peter, took me while to realise, you haven’t driven off a cliff and into the sea, it’s just a car under a tarp!

What about this:
/www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CLASSIC-AND-KIT-CAR-BLACK-SUN-VISORS-UN-DRILLED-KIT-NEW/153037980048?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D52945%26meid%3D209cf443fa114ba09bedfb44c1fdca19%26pid%3D100623%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D163091466135%26itm%3D153037980048&_trksid=p2047675.c100623.m-1
It will provide you with the hinges, although meant for prespex visors. If you are lucky, you will be able to use the visors as well. They might be a few mm to short, in case you could at least keep the hinges. But the visors could be ok, with a very narrow margin. Comes in various colours. I have ordered, but not received yet. If they are to short, I will get some custom perspex from a local shop.We'll see...

Could this be usefu? You get the brackets, but as you see, they are intended for perspex visors. The visors, by the way, come in green, blue and red apart from black. They are 365 mm long, marginally long enough - I hope. Waiting for mine - if they are to short I will get a pair made at some local shop.
