Knowledge is a good thing.

The guy doesnt manufacture these, they have to come from some car. They always seem to run up over $100.00 in every auction he has them in. It is probably a 20 dollar mirror or $5.00 from a wrecking yard. Just need to find out which car it comes from. Someone has to know.

His "see-through" sun visors are the stupidist thing I think I have ever seen for a car...

:o I thought you were joking! That is stupid. I wonder if he sells screen doors for submarines too.


Then again, maybe they are made of stuff that automatically darkens in the sunlight. Then if you're lazy, you just leave them down all the time.

Birgit Heinz told me at the last Alameda AX she had a 'removeable' mirror in her dearly departed purple teener. I didn't see the value in it at the time, so I didn't think to ask where she got it.

I don't think she lurks on the club site much though.

Maybe Brad can help (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) , since I know he has been helping her recover from the loss with her new car project.

Bug sheild for when he removes his windsheild (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/lol2.gif) or maybe they are for wind redirection when the top is off (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Good thing he's not trying to auction clear visors...

Want to know something funny- I thought about doing the same thing BUT I wanted to tint the really dark to block the sun. Seems like it could be a usefull idea because the visor could come down longer than stock for when the sun is setting lower. Or maybe, it's a test fit and he'll have those upholster later?

He was selling them too awhile back except they were tinted. Not dark enough for me however, they actually sold a few times on Ebay.

I bought a BMW mirror that looked like this one, but it is not exactly the same. I figure that it would not be to hard to pu the visor pin on it with some cold steel (?), the stuff they sell that is like JB weld but a putty. I havent had time to fool with it, but when I do I will post the results. The mirror was $10, and the putty was like $3.50. I wish that I could get a close up of how the visor pin is on this mirror. I tried to emial him in the past to get a pic, but I got no reply. I wonder why not.

Didn't some early VW Type1's come with tinted visors? I seem to remember seeing them on quite a few Bugs. (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)
