Looking at another run of visors to recover $110 a set in vinyl naked or with flap and pocket, but need 12 sets to do this. Many happy customers, and better than $300+ for a decent set of visors.

Who's interested?

You will need to send in a stripped core (we can strip for $25 more), and we will recover. Shipping is not included in the cost.

Can I trade in a few sets of cores for a set? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Yes, I will basically sell cores to those that need them. The core charge has been $35 a set stripped (so you can make sure the ends are good). Easier to ship that way too.

Just let me know how many cores you will be sending.

True, but this is a slower time of year so easier for us to accommodate. It also looks like cores may be an option too. These trade out pretty easily. There will also be a special for those that join that will be worth your while. Just an option that can save you some more money if you wish.

So you can wait til Xmas if you want (IMG:style_emoticons/default/santa_smiley.gif)

Can you do set or two for me in German Vinyl if I supply the materials? I would love for it to match my dash vinyl and top of the door cards. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif)

Please, pretty please!

I can try. really depends on how the material rolls over the corners. I don't think it will be a problem, but will not know until we try.

So Yes I can, but if the material co-operates. We have chosen the material we use as it's durable UV stable and wears well, it also will allow some stretch without showing. .

I can decide later, but regardless please include me for a set.

Well if @914_7T3 is jumping in, I'd better also. Put me down for a set. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

If you're going to take care of Jeffrey, I'd like mine done in Corinthian Leather. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif)

Actually for his car it would be a shame to not use the exact German Vinyl . . . and he's the man that can find it!

On a more serious note, I'd love to have much of my interior done in Leather or a mix of Leather and Alcantera faux suede for those "sensitive" seating surfaces. Not really looking forward to sitting on hot black vinyl again in my lifetime.

Curious if you've considered either material as a possibility. I'm probably in the minority here on this one though.

Depends on how quickly this comes together and how quickly you send in cores. We do them in order received.

I'd say it's possible.

You provide, I'll give it a shot. These are somewhat technical to sew.

Okay, I'm in let me know when it's happening and I can overnight them to you. Hopefully will be first in line. If it comes together this week that would give use right at 1 month to make it happen. If it doesn't happen before Okteenerfest then I'm still in but will wait until after the event to send them in.

THANKS!

Keep me informed

Hmm. . . . you're a good sport. Let me do some digging to see if I can find some leather that would be appropriate for visors. How big a swath do you need? Obviously big enough to cover both sides of both visors but we also need to allow for some scrap I'm sure.

Hey Mark,
Do you use the same vinyl that is used on the rest of your black repro stuff? In other words, will it match my seats, my backpad, my console and my doorcards?

I need enough to cover both sides and make the flap, so off a roll 20" should enough.

The grain is identical, but it is different. You can't tell even if you put next to another piece.
