Can't quite tell from the pic. Is the mirror included or do we pop our own in there? Doesn't matter to me as long as a mirror winds up under the flap.

Mirror is included as it has to be sewn in. That's part of the tricky part, these are not as easy as you would think.

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.


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.

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


@bbrock @Superhawk996 @Mikey914 Just to be clear, its the vinyl that is used for the dash, center console and tops of the door cards and not as heavy as the heat sealed originals. I will bring a sample of the Originals to the interior shop to see if they have something similar.

If all else fails, Corinthian can work too! Smiles, Everybody Smiles!

Kinda wish you would offer this at the end of the driving season. Would make a nice Christmas offer.


My fault. Mark and I we’re talking on the phone and I mentioned someone on Facebook was looking and he said Group Buy!

All you do to prep the core is slit the vinyl open and peel it off the frame. Remove any little bits of foam that is stuck to the metal frame. It takes about 5 minutes. Sandwich the frame in between a couple layers of cardboard when you ship and write your name on the cardboard.

Looks like we are about 10 at this point and may pick up a straggler or two.

So we prefer to have the cores cut open and gutted. All we need is the wire cores. We then clean up the substructure and build the new ones.

The only issue we have ever had with cores are the screw clamps. This is why we ask you to strip them down. Occasionally, the metal is pulled through from over tightening.

We will rebuild your cores and return to you.

Also, ONLY for those that participate in the rebuild we will offer the new visor clips. These are the new ones we make that are polished stainless steel. You will notice that when you remove these the pins will be rusty where they pivot on the pin. This is because the factory ones were plated steel and the scratch the chrome off to review the steel underneath. Of course they will rust. Mine will not.

They are also made without the hollow the factory ones have as it actually creates a weak spot if we did them that way, so we spent the extra .02 in material and solved that issue.

They are $59 a set with this GB. This is a substantial savings (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I'm off work tomorrow recovering from surgery. I'll talk to local car upholstery shop and see if I can come up with a good sized leather remnant on the cheap. Would love to have you do the work!

Ok I'm in for a set. Please post pictures so I know what I'm cutting into when I strip the visors. Is there anything that will cause them to not be useable?
