Hello everyone,
I have been looking for an answer through google as well as this forum, but have not been able to locate anything specific. My question is are the sunvisors different on vehicles equipped with a t-top? I ordered a set recently and they do not seem to go up all the way (t-top parts blocking them). I had thrown away the ones that came with the car awhile back so I was not able to compare them.

There is no difference between any of them. The only way they won't fit is if you have the mounting plate on the visors mounted incorrectly.

Hello,
Thanks for the quick replies. I took some shots of my current setup and am not quite sure how it differs from your pics.

Whoever redid your headliner used way to thick foam on it.

I believe the visors need to be mounted a certain way, so as the angle is correct. You may want to pull the visor down and rotate the mount to see if the angle is correct. Otherwise there is no difference in visors on Fieros (when it comes to mounting).

Remove your top and take some pics of your end caps. (front and rear if you please)
For some reason they just don't look right.

I too thought something was wrong on the caps but they are ok. It was just an optical illusion.

From what I can see the padding on the headliner is too thick and should be thinner. Also the visors you have are not stock Fiero visors and are not cut right on the outer edge. The factory ones had less of an outer edge and they fold right up.

Change the visors to a FIero OE correct visor and fix the head liner and it should be fine.

There Is only one place to screw them is so changing them may be your only choice.

All t tops used factory visors that were the same on all of the cars.

That's actually my second set. My other set I got from the Fiero Store (I believe) and they have the same problem. That's why I am stumped.
